Tammie Painter


Whether you searched for me on purpose or you’ve accidentally tripped your way into my world, welcome! I’m a writer and artist/illustrator living in the Portland area. Yes, I have a wide array of interests that I love to write about and capture on paper, canvas or wood panels.

Excuse the Mess

During July and August 2015 I’ll be revamping this website to create a more streamlined and professional look. (You can learn all about the remodel AND watch a Monty Python clip here.) Thanks for your patience and be sure to sign up for my mailing list to be the first to know about the new site (and perhaps some special offers) as soon as it’s launched!

Stay in Touch and Win!

By filling in the form below, you’ll be among the first to learn about my new releases (books and art), receive exclusive discounts, and get the scoop on upcoming giveaways. You can look forward to one or two announcements a month. I pinky swear not to overwhelm you with emails and also promise to never share your info with anyone.


As an added bonus, each month I randomly select one person from my mailing list to win a free paperback copy of one of my books. Yes FREE – I’ll even pay for the shipping. July’s prize is a paperback copy of the original edition of Easy Preserving! **

**Giveaway Details

  • Winners will be randomly selected on the final day of each month and contacted at the email address provided. If you don’t win, you will be automatically entered into the following month’s giveaway.
  • Sorry, but winners of paperback books must have a U.S. address. If you win and do not have a U.S. address you will be offered a free e-book version. In this case, a second winner will be randomly selected to receive the free paperback book.
  • Your information will not be shared with anyone. Ever. Except under torture. I don’t do pain.
