Tamara Patenaude(fabric artist)
Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada
Tamara Patenaude was born in Montreal, Quebec. She grew up in Oshawa, Ontario and developed a love for sketching photos from a very early age. She has always felt close connections to artists, like Maude Lewis, Grandma Moses, and Horace Pippin. All of these artists are self taught and had a passion to share the beauty that surrounded them. Tamara is presently a visual arts teacher and loves to see the joy and excitement visual arts brings to her students in grades 1 to 6. She has her specialist in visual arts. While teaching, she experimented and transferred her sketching skills to quilting. She loves the feel and look of the different materials and textures. She can spend many hours, selecting the just the right colour/texture/material to create the feel she is looking for. Tamara has recently started to attend and display her work in local Christmas markets. She has done many consignments of pets and people. Although Tamara’s main love is for her portraits of people and animals, she continues to experiment with other mediums.
Each picture is a one of a kind portrait, whether inspired by nature or a photo from a consignment.
We use top quality fabrics.
