Born in Malaysia, raised in Canberra, discovered what life was about in Sydney and now lives in Melbourne. After studying fashion at the Whitehouse Institute Tamara continued her obsession with all things textile at RMIT in Melbourne, before starting her design studio Funky Wombat Textiles in 2010.
Funky Wombat Textiles is tucked away in the inner city suburb of Collingwood, here Tamara creates designs that have been used for a variety of applications, including private and government commissions along with her own ranges of wallpapers and fabrics. Drawing inspiration from both the natural and urban environments, Tamara uses a combination of hand-drawn and digital techniques to create the intricately detailed designs evident throughout her collections.
Aware of the environmental aspects of traditional textile printing techniques Tamara is constantly reviewing and upgrading her production and manufacturing processes in order to ensure that the only impact she makes is an aesthetic one.
