LOST IN MY MIND... FOUND IN THE ARTS

Lose yourself in the arts

MEET TAMSYN

​I consider myself a creative young adult, who has a passion for creating art through photography, video and drawing.

Although I do not wish to be defined by my disability, I am an amputee. I was born with a condition called Fibular Hemimelia and had my left leg amputated below the knee when I was 18 months old.

PASSION

PASSION

I love the arts and in 2019 I committed to renting an art studio so I can immerse myself in my art, surrounded by
like-minded, creative, inspiring, working artists. 


Being an amputee in the art field may be challenging, but my passion and desire are so strong, I know I will succeed

 I look forward to it. 

PHOTOGRAPHY

Photography is where I found and first begun developing my passion for the arts.  I love to explore different ways of telling a story through photography.  As a young child, I knew instinctively that the arts could be a refuge for me. I suppose that is because embracing creativity was a way for me to escape inner turmoil and my disability. Art is not only a way for me to express my emotions but it is a platform for me to communicate the social and cultural aspects that surround my life.
