Tamara Laporte (‘willowing’) is a creative catalyst of thousands of beautiful people. She is a celebrated mixed media artist and art teacher who has been running her own creative business since late 2008. Her work can be described as ‘mixed media folk art’ with a focus on ‘magical realism’. It ranges from whimsical children’s illustrations to a more stylised fantasy art. Love, mystery, innocence, hope, spirituality, kindness and self-connection inspires her art work. Symbolism and layering play a big part in her work. Her paintings often contain healing themes, uplifting messages and inspirational poetry.
She believes that the act of creating art can be a gateway into healing and personal growth – often, her art classes contain an element of self development as well as learning art techniques. She is deeply devoted to helping people get in touch with their creative fire and would love to help YOU too to get in touch with the artist in you!
Tam lives and works in the South of England with her handsome husband Andy and two magical boys, Dylan & Elliot. Her left and right hand woman in the studio is the glitter-filled Gracie Howle.
Gel Press is delighted to feature Tam’s artwork in our Celebrity Artist Gallery at CHA / Creativation & CreativeWorld and to be a sponsor of LifeBook 2017.
