Tamara Wyndham was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She studied traditional drawing and painting at California State University, Long Beach; and more experimental drawing, book works, and performance at the University of California at Irvine.
Wyndham moved to New York City, where she became active in various feminist, political, spiritual and arts communities. Wyndham has traveled through Mexico and Central America, as well as Egypt, Morocco, Turkey, Spain, Czech Republic, and other parts of Europe. These experiences have informed her art.
Wyndham has been awarded artist residencies at the Henry Street Settlement, the Kate Millett Art Colony, the Vermont Studio Center, the Mariz Ceramic Workshop in the Czech Republic, Fundacion Valparaiso in Spain, and a fellowship from Earthwatch to work in Orce, Spain.
