About the Tutor

Tamayo Leahy was born in Fukuoka, Japan and settled down in Perth in 2014. Tamayo has been enthusiastically making art for all her life and achieved a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2007 from the University of Tasmania.

Her specialities are oil and acrylic painting, watercolour and silk painting, and printmaking.  Tamayo has several art awards including Best Print Award at the City of Burnie TasArt Exhibition in 2008.  Her unique hand-painted silk scarves are very popular.  She also taught and demonstrated silk painting in Tasmania and Perth.

In recent years Tamayo has concentrated on creating colourful images of stylized ladies which depict the harmony, not the conflict, between Japan and Australia.  “Harmony between Two Cultures” is her main theme.  She weaves the different icons from the East and the West harmoniously into her art works. Tamayo is very proud of expressing sweet images with love and hope for all humanity in her art works.  She sees her art works as bridging different cultures.
