Acrylic Mixed Media Painting Workshop by Andrea Tama

Andrea Tama is a mixed media artist inspired by landscapes and flora. They contain mysteries that ask to be uncovered, explored, enhanced—and sometimes not to be trifled with at all. Tama works from photos, drawings, and the memories she gathers. Communicating ideas and feelings about colors, textures, patterns and surfaces of these places is the soul of her work.
