modern abstract art by Tamara Spence

Spotlight on Canadian Abstract Artist Tamara Spence


“For me Art is healing…lessons of personal acceptance.”


This according to Tamara Spence, an artist who enjoys creating all forms of modern abstract art. Her greatest influence was her father, a philosopher, sculptor, teacher and lover of nature.

Tamara enjoys creating abstract forms by mixing various mediums and techniques. I caught up with her to find out why she enjoys abstract art so much.


What is it that you find so intriguing about abstract art?

I enjoy abstract art because it allows each individual to interpret the piece in their own way. I believe abstract art promotes thinking and feeling. I guess I’m a non-conformist.


Art by Tamara Spence: REVERB series

Where do you usually find your inspiration?

Inspiration comes from a song, a colour, a shape or a feeling.


Which art piece or work you did, that you are most proud of and why?

I think I am most proud of my SILHOUETTE Series. A series of ink and watercolour portraits that pushed me out of my comfort zone of pure abstraction into abstract realism.


What do you think the future of art & design will bring in terms of creativity?

I feel the future of art and design will be a blend of physical and digital manifestation.


How do you see yourself in 10 years time?

In ten years I hope to have explored more sculpture and dabbled in digital painting.

Some of her artworks are also available on print. In collaboration with One Tree Planted, to raise awareness about the importance of trees. Each of Tamara’s art pieces sold, one tree will be planted.
