Tammy has always felt a strong bond with animals and aimed to recreate that feeling in art. Drawing on a variety of life experiences and sculpting workshops, Tammy developed her own signature style utilizing different techniques and mediums to create unique pieces representing our interconnectedness with animals and capturing not only their images, but also their spirits.

Tammy enjoys exploring the strengths of each medium she sculpts in – the freedom and spontaneity of raku fired clay, the strength and precision of bronze, the luminosity and intrigue of crystal – and complementing their weaknesses with the strengths of the others.

Tammy's work is found in private, corporate and museum collections in the US, Europe and Japan.
