Artist Statement

Tammie Painter grew up in the creative world of Portland, Oregon, and she continues to call the City of Roses home. Although she spent years working as a chemist in a behavioral neuroscience research lab, she could never quite tame her desire to express herself through words and images. When circumstances provided her the chance to pursue a creative career, she seized it and has never looked back.

As an artist, Tammie’s love of nature shines through in her botanical and wildlife art, but that doesn’t stop her from exploring other subjects such as the shiny curve of a car or colorful abstracts. Whatever subject she chooses to draw or paint, her work is characterized by the intricate details that are often overlooked in our daily lives.

While Tammie has recently rediscovered her love of acrylics and continually strives to learn new techniques, she works primarily in colored pencil as this medium captures vivid colors while still allowing for the intricate details of her finished pieces.
