"My drive is the desire to know God, to emulate his art... Transformative, powerful, and soul fulfilling."
Tamara Liz is a recipient of the 2022-23 artist grant awarded by the El Paso Museums & Cultural Affairs Department and the National Endowment for the Arts. Her non-profit, Espíritu Creativo, received the VELA grant in 2022, to continue the facilitation of art programming for k-12 homeschoolers. Tamara continues to give back to the community offering SEL art classes and spiritual arts workshops in Socorro, TX.
Tamara's professional art career began in 2004, in Puerto Rico; where she completed her BA in Fine Arts. She continued to be involved in the arts when she moved to the United States but knowing from the inside out the transformative powers of art, she completed a MA in Art Therapy in 2016.
Tamara Liz has worked with different populations- witnessing the border crisis while she worked with minor immigrants and contributing with her art therapy services in substance abuse clinics, non-profits, and local businesses. Tamara is always eager to partner with her community to deliver therapeutic art services and exhibit her high vibration, healing art.
