Tamara Muller

The faces of Tamara Muller´s characters are intense, striking, and almost allways her own.  I´m very fascinated by their expressions and love the unfinished details she includes in her paintings. Currently living and working in Haarlem, The Netherlans, Tamara Muller obtained the Master’s of Fine Art degree at the Academy of Art and Design Post St. Joost in Den Bosch in 2007.  Her works deal with subjects such as domination, submission and animalistic instincts. On her website you can read more about her background and about how the context of her works has developed overtime.
