Tamsin Barlow grew up on the Left Coast of America, spending her years teaching science, doing pharmacology research, teaching fitness classes, graphic design, and rearing children. Being an artist has always been her goal, but for years she only had the time for intense doodling sessions during meetings. Being a mother of children interested in theater brought her backstage where someone thrust a paintbrush in her hands and asked, “Think you can make that wall look like it was made of rocks?” Rock walls led to trees, to the Hundred-Acre Woods, to castles and jungles. Time at the theater led to increasing confidence and finally when the babies were launched and off to college, she pursued art full-time. She has also been in recent shows at the Rochester Art Center and at Crossings.
