Tamara Rafkin has been creating artwork most of her life and exhibiting her work for more than twenty years. With an extensive exhibiting history of her photography work, she has recently embarked upon exploration in ceramic work as well.

Having grown up and attended college in the Deep South of the US, she has lived many places including New York City, San Francisco and for the past ten years in Flanders, Belgium. This varied experience contributes to her outlook and process found within her artwork.

Recently returning to New York City, she is exploring what it means to return to a culture after so many years abroad and is looking forward to the observations it will bring.
