Tamara graduated in 2007 from Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Painting. After 5 years pretending to be a normal adult, she quit her job in banking and became an full time artist and maker. After several years with Geekspace Gwinnett (a makerspace in the Atlanta area), she relocated to Columbus, Georgia, and now works with ColumbusMakesIT! Tamara also loves make up and designing her own costumes and enjoys dressing up and going to themed parties and conventions, especially DragonCon. She is a firm believer that art makes everything better and Instagram is the best thing to happen to smart phones. Tamara also obsesses over Doctor Who, anything with glitter, and live music.
