Tamara resides and works in Waynesville, a quaint mountain town nestled between the Great Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains.
In 2013, Tamara began her stained-glass journey. She attended an intensive course at Aanraku Glass Studio in San Mateo, Ca with her sister-in-law –- where her joy for the art of stained glass was launched.
Over the next couple of years, she continued developing her skills, then in 2016, set up an in-home stained-glass studio, Smokey Mountain Glass, where she designs her work.
“Living in these beautiful mountains and working with glass to create one-of-a-kind pieces of art gives me great pleasure which I enjoy sharing with others!”
