Tamera Seevers is a native to Colorado and her love for the west comes from spending most of her summers in the high rugged mountains of Colorado. The excitement of exploring old ghost towns and mining camps, abandoned by the miners, left her fascinated with western history and the gold rush days.
Her family’s cattle and sheep ranch, the Flying H (once the fourth largest ranch in the United States) was the scene of some of the most notorious epic saga of the old west. The same land where the well known Billy The Kids hide out was. A place where John Henry Tunstall, John Chisum and Alexander McSween started the Lincoln County Wars. The stories about the ranch have influenced Tamera in creating her unique style of art.
Her unusual form of artistry was ignited by the display of eggshells at the National Western Stock Show hall of education. Ostrich ranching for their meat has become a western theme and spying a huge ostrich eggshell at the stock shows exhibit, Tamera’s mind race with excitement at the discovery of her new found canvas. It was as if the medium reached out and picked her. “Tamera’s carvings are amazing creations with such rich intricate detail that one has to see to believe.” Richard Savino, Emmy award winning FOX creative news producer.
