Canadian artist Tamara Phillips had us smitten with her nature inspired works. Having a degree in biology instilled this profound respect for the natural world and its preservation, and this shows in her artistic works, through the colors she uses, and technique.
I am completely inspired by the natural world. Beauty is everywhere! It is in an old growth forest, the depth of the sea, and the curve of a 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 overwhelmed by my need to narrate it.
