Maryland’s Tamara Shea is primarily a stamper and printmaker who uses polymer clay (usually brown) to bring her hand-carved images to life. Acrylic paints bring out the details and a sealer protects the work. Fall is a particularly appropriate time to feature her leaves and finds from the woods.
Tamara opened her successful Etsy shop in 2006. As you flip through her work, note the remarkable consistency even as she expands her themes.
You may enjoy the bug and butterfly pictures she’s been taking of late and posting on Flickr. Her eye is drawn to objects and creatures that eventually crawl into her work.

I love what she does, it is so original, simple yet intricate and graphic !

Tamara has always inspired me – her work is unmistakably hers and the way she explores the world through polymer is fascinating! All this while making affordable designs…

Boy. You had me at Gingko—–:) Her success is so well deserved; she works hard, has a unique voice, and is always pushing her limits.
So pretty such great work.
