A portrait of my dear friend and fellow artist, Tamara Armstrong. I first began sketching Tamara in a small forest in Centennial Park, Sydney. The portrait continued in my studio, taking 3 weeks to complete.
Tamara Armstrong is an Australian visual artist, living and working from her purpose-built art studio at Tamborine Mountain in the Gold Coast hinterland of Queensland.
Tamara paints portraits of empowered women who live life in brilliant colour and bold substance. She says “diversifying the representation of what beauty looks like is something that is very important to me, hence my choice of subjects aims to subtly disrupt and challenge the status quo.”
This painting is available. Email Kim with any enquiries.
