She's So Unusual
She likes to think she is Gloria Vanderbilt but this is who she really is; Creative Diva, Artist and Lead Daydreamer at Oscar's Emporium Curiosities & Psychic Parlour.
C'mon she grew up in small town in a house called Honey Gables surrounded by psychics, tea leaves and various other things that go bump in the night and day.
Tamara (Tam-R-a, not Tam-AIR-a) has been catering to her creative muses since she was young.
Winning her first art competition at 4 years old she has never looked back - EVER.
She was the first in town to have Laura Ashley fabric (yes that Laura Ashley) which she progressively fashioned into surfer shorts for her friends.
In her mind, she has remained best friends with the Goddess, Cyndi Lauper since 1984. Is it any surprise that She's so Unusual?
Tamara, an award winning graduate in Haute Couture Fashion Design at 19 years old, quickly realized she preferred wearing the clothing to designing for others.... and so...off to University she went, while never putting down her paint brush. 20+ years later, she is respected and established as a commercial artist, published artist, independent artist.
The Artistry of Tamara Annis - is a collection of original ink and water color paintings, reflecting various twists and characters in her (somewhat) eccentric life... the characters in her work are intended to have mystical feel and message.
Tamara is also the creator of The Beauty Spot All Natural Skin Care, 100% All Natural Skin Care.
The Beauty Spot All Natural Skin Care products lines include: soaps, lotions, shampoos and certified organic teas that she, her family and friends have been using since 1998. They refer to The Beauty Spot as Practical Magic for your skin!
Tamara is married to her high school sweetheart, Mike, who she married 20 years, 1 husband, 1 divorce and 1 kid (whom has since made her a very proud Grandmother!) after high school graduation.
When she is not painting, sewing, gardening, decorating her Airstream named Sally Haircut, talking to the faeries in her kickass faerie house, co- producing the internet show and podcast "It's Live! From Somewhere... and Wine" (currently in development), helping combat domestic violence as Vice- President of Burning Bliss Project Phoenix, Tamara chases around their darling son Oscar. The last one on that list is the most exhausting....
And yes, he is exactly like Anderson Cooper.
