Tamara is an illustrator, quilter and educator based in Montreal. Both her fabrics and her quilts have been featured in a number of North American quilting magazines and she regularly creates original quilts for companies within the textile industry. Having spent her youth in the Caribbean plays a large part in Tamara's design aesthetic. She is greatly inspired by nature, color and pattern and plays on a combination of her weekend wanderings, her children's current fascinations and her own memories to tell stories through design. She creates work that is fresh, joyous and youthful with a touch of whimsy.
"I was thrilled to create my first collection for Windham Fabrics entitled 'Aerial'. It's about the beauty and freedom we can find, now more than ever, when we slow down to appreciate the simple things and reconnect with the natural world around us."-Tamara
"Appreciating the little things... Sunlight, little colorful winged creatures, petals and leaves floating on the wind... Simple things that delight!"
With hand drawn and watercolor painted elements, Aerial is an enchanting collection that is teaming with vibrancy and life. Tamara's hope is that it brings you the visual breath of fresh air that it does for her. Aerial is comprised of 19 whimsical mix-and-match prints.
"Welcome to Aerial!" ~Tamara
