Tamara Phillips

A artist from coastal B.C., inspired by the natural world.

Tamara’s art is inspired by the raw beauty of the natural world, resonating cellular life and ethereal vibrancy. Her detailed watercolour paintings are woven together in earth tones, and she uses the malleability of watercolour to explore the connection between myth, dream, intuition, and reality.

Tamara was born on Vancouver Island, Canada. She obtained her BSc in Biology from the University of Victoria and currently resides in coastal British Columbia. An itinerant wanderer, she enjoys both backcountry and world travel, and has called city, sea, and forest her home. Drawing from the subconscious, and filtered through the biological, she continues to investigate our beautiful Earth.

“I am completely inspired by the natural world. Beauty is everywhere. It is in the growth of the forest, the depth of the sea, and the curve of the bone. It is skin, scales, bark, and tide pool ripples. It is texture, and it is raw. I am a translator of life, and I am compelled to narrate it.”
