Tamara Webster (1917-2011) was a gallery owner and mixed-media artist in Cambria, California.
Webster incorporated painting, weaving, mosaic, ethnic jewelry, furniture, woodwork, and sculpture into her artwork. She moved to Cambria in the early 1970s and operated the Tamara Webster gallery in two locations before moving it to her home studio. Webster befriended abstract painter Frederick Hammersley while living in California. After Webster moved to New Mexico in 1971 the two artists corresponded and remained friends for many years.
