Since childhood, Tammy was most a t home with a sketchbook
and pencil in hand, creating images and playing with
colour, which became her second nature. Residing in
the small village of Odessa, local farmers became very
familiar with her afternoon habits, sitting in the fields
drawing livestock. Only when the farmers fertilized
thier fields and the weather refused to co-operate,
did Tammy mover her passion indoors.
It was at this time that she chose to embrace her talents
and pursue her studies in Fine Art at Brock University.
Later, in 2001, she finished her final year at Queen's
University in the Venice Summer School Program. As a
compliment to her Fine Art Degree, Tammy challenged
her skills in the Advanced Illustration Program at Sheridan
College in Oakville.
Returning once again to the country, Tammy specializes
in acrylic paint on canvas. Her work mingles a painterly
technique with contemporary images. Inspired by elements
in nature she begins with a single object, swirling
it in a rich colour palatte, exploring every detail.
The anticipation of the unfinished piece is what drives
As an emerging artist, Tammy has most recently taken
part in the Kingston art's Council Juried Exhibition,
attaing the People's Choice Award. Working mainly on
commissioned pieces, in the privacy of her own home,
Tammy is fascinated by all of the possibilities of communication
through Fine Art.
