After studying printmaking at BealArt in London, Ontario, Tammy
settled in Guelph where she set up room twenty-three, an open print
studio and gallery. She then travelled in the UK and Europe , studying
at Central St. Martins in London, England, and printing at Artichoke
printshop in Brixton. Her monoprints, drypoints and etchings have been
exhibited in shows throughout North America, including the Hollywood
International Print Exhibition in Florida , Guelph 2002 at the
Macdonald Stewart Art Centre and at the Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery
Currently, she is working with the cooperation of the University of
Guelphs print department toward solo shows at Kitchener City Halls
Rotunda Gallery this July and the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre this
fall. Tammy is a founding member of the Guelph Arts Festival and works
out of her studio in downtown Guelph.
Tammys recent prints break down images of natural groupings
(beads, leaves, seeds, birds) into isolated elements and then uses
these to build the whole image back up, playing on ideas of inclusion,
exclusion, difference and (re)grouping. This fascination with the
spatial and emotional facets of relationships is embodied in both her
artisitic process and in the content of her art.
Her work can be found at Trias Gallery and Open Studio in Toronto.
