Hi! I'm Tate Fairbanks, and I am an abstract nature artist. Ever since I was a young girl, I found inspiration through nature. Whether that was from staring out at the rolling hills of England while driving to primary school, skiing in the Rocky Mountain Range, or hiking the peaks of Grand Teton National Park with my husband, I love collecting memories of the beauty all around us for inspiration.
If you have ever gone out into nature with me, you know that I am always 20 yards behind the group gathering rocks, leaves, and wildflowers, filling my pockets and hands full of things that both inspire and help create my artwork.
Even as a young girl, I always considered myself to be an artist. I obsessed over coloring books and art supply kits and loved working with my mom on "Mod Podge" projects and making paper mache masks.
Since those years, I've explored this artistic side of myself in several different ways, like experimenting with watercolor, graduating from cosmetology school, and working with and learning from other artists. Recently I've started to explore other mediums, specifically resin and encaustic painting, and it has been such a fun learning experience!
I plan to continually improve my skills as an artist and hope that, along the way, I'll be able to share some of this art (be it watercolor, digital art, resin, encaustic, or something entirely new) with you!
