About Tamar

The Siesta Project was started by Tamar Schoneveld. Originally from The Netherlands she now lives in Australia with her little family. Working during the nap time of her son she creates illustrations and repeat patterns. Her inspiration comes from travelling, food, her love for the Mediterranean and of course her son.
“My son Orión inspired me to start “The Siesta Project”. I’ve always loved painting but I never had the courage to put it out there into the world. I never knew where to start and if I was good enough. I think becoming a mum finally gave me the courage that I needed. So during Orion’s nap time (or siesta time as I call it) I paint.”
