Tamara Baussan was born in Bakou, Russia in 1909 where she studied painting as a child. In the late 1920's, she traveled to Paris to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts where she met and later married Robert Baussan, a Haitian who was studying Architecture. They moved to Haiti in 1931, or 1942, depending on which source you read, and were important collaborators in the founding of the Centre d'Art in 1944. According to Gerard Alexis in his book "Peintres Haitiens", she was a member, along with Andree Naude and Michele Manuel, of the Atelier de la Tete de l'Eau, where they worked side by side for some years
Tamara Baussan died in Petionville in 1999
