Fort Collins, Colorado
Thanks to her mother’s and grandmother’s encouragement, Tamara Simmons, who was born in post-war Germany began painting at an early age. In the 1960s, she immigrated with her family to the United States where they settled in Maryland.
Tamara attended the Corcoran School of Fine Art in Washington, DC and graduated from the University of Maryland with a BA in Fine Art. Since moving to Fort Collins in the 1990s, Tamara has developed a classical old-world style deriving inspiration from beauty that surrounds us - be it a simple still-life or the grandeur of a Colorado landscape. A member of Oil Painters of America, her paintings have received corporate, regional and national awards.
