Tamara Thomsen lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She studied painting in school, obtaining a BFA from Syracuse University and an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. She reimmersed herself in fine art full-time after a two-decades job at New York design firm, Smart Design.

In 2013 events included: a solo exhibit, Spaces and Places: Interiors and Landscapes in Watercolor, at 350 Bleecker Lobby Gallery in Manhattan; Particular Vitrines: January Crimsons, a public art piece at 65 Broadway in the financial district in Manhattan, and Personal Accounts, a group show at Long Island University in Brooklyn. Other recent group exhibits include The New Intimists at NURTUREart and Brooklyn Navy Yard Artists, both in Brooklyn.

A selection of Tamara's work is included in Watercolor, Paintings by Contemporary Artists, a new publication from Chronicle Books released in April 2013. Leslie Dutcher writes in the book's introduction:

" . . . Thomsen's rooms, as well as her landscapes, give the viewer the perspective of being fully immersed in their spaces--in fact, her watercolors are unusually large, some nearly wall-sized. They further evoke the palette and sparseness of a van Gogh painting--the post-Impressionist painter also worked in watercolor and created many distinctive works less textured than the oil paintings that most associate with his oeuvre."
