Description This was my first drawing in this series - burglars hightailing it up birch trees with their stolen loot. For this one I chose Russian nesting dolls as the loot, for no good reason other than who DOESN'T like those kooky things, right? They're so fun and pretty! Here's some trivia: the Russian word for them is 'Matryoshka.' Impress your friends!
Tamara Garvey, Brooklyn Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement My name is Tamara and I live in Brooklyn, NY. I have a BFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art & Design.
In my art, I enjoy working in ink, or ink combined with another medium. I love having ink-stained fingers! I've always loved to read, so my pieces frequently depict narratives, and sometimes even incorporate text with the images. Even my ten-year-old biology degree sometimes sneaks in there to inform my work, too. ;)
