Tamara Robertson was born and raised in a military family in Eastern, NC. As a small child, she had a very vivid imagination and a wish to explore the world around her. She very early on became an observer of humans in their natural elements which added to her story telling ability. As a youth, she spent a large amount of time with her father watching Star Trek and tinkering in the garage – rebuilding engines, up – keeping the family cars and building / renovating homes.
She learned her love of machinery, as well as all things technical, from her time working with her dad.

Tamara has found that she loves to utilize the design and beauty of the world around her to help create designs and tell stories.
