Bality-Penn, Tammy Lynne
Tammy has always felt a bond with animals and aimed to recreate that feeling in art. Drawing on a variety of life experiences and technical 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 combines traditional influences with a variety of mediums and sculpting techniques to create innovative art that gives voice to nature’s spirit. She sculpts horses and other animals from clay, bronze and crystal, incorporating silver and stone as well. Tammy enjoys exploring the strengths of each medium – the freedom and spontaneity of ceramic, the strength and precision of bronze, the luminosity and intrigue of crystal – and complementing their weaknesses with the strengths of the others.
Tammy believes different mediums allow you to say or portray different things and selects her medium based upon the message she aims to communicate. Tammy’s ideas flourish and her creativity reinvigorates when she changes mediums, enabling her to continually create refreshing works of art.
