Hi, I'm Tamar Dick. Welcome to my site and thank you for finding me here!

Tamar Dick's Bio:

Tamar Dick has a 25 year experience history in the fine arts and entertainment industry.


"Self-educated, beginning at an early age, Tamar Dick left the east coast at 18 years of age for career oppertunities in the Entertainment Industry in California.


Beginning as a freelance artist and cutting her teeth on a variety of low-budget projects and horror movies, she was initiated into IATSE Local 729 while employed on the second season of John Landis's, Dream On. In 1991 she became a working member of union productions as a Set Painter, but still continued her passion for more of the creative freedoms that the independent film productions and projects offered."


With strengths in tackling technically challenging projects and attention to fine detail, she has established herself as a leading talent in the scenic and contract arts, spanning a diverse genre of projects and applications. With skills ranging from improvising on a limited budget to large scale union productions, no project is beyond the scope of the imagination and the dedication in bringing it to fruition.


Tamar has kept busy in the arts and entertainment field throughout the US and Canada, and has shown her artwork in art galleries in California and on the east coast.
