Tammy Walters is a professional artist based in Lancashire, in the North West of England. Having enjoyed the last 10 years working in places like Azerbaijan and Dubai which opened the door for the international community to purchase her work, where they now proudly hang in many countries around the world, she is now enjoying the Lancashire life in all its splendour.
Born near the epic Aintree Grand National, her passion for Horses has led her to becoming the Resident Artist at Aintree International Equestrian Centre, which is the perfect place for her to study the equine form.
Her equestrian paintings capture the emotional connection that she feels around these beautiful animals, and having the best of British Racing and British Showjumping, and British Dressage on her doorstep she has plenty of subject material.
The greatest compliment for any artist is that their work reaches out to you and makes you feel something, no matter how little or how much you know about art. Her energy and passion is just bursting to get out and flows through her work giving her paintings life and charisma.
Tammy is a self taught artist with many years of experience and predominantly works in oils & acrylics, although she has a huge passion for pen & ink and creates pony and dog illustrations. With her extensive range of styles and genre she loves to change mediums to keep her mind fresh and alive.
Please explore the paintings which are a bold expression of all things wonderful that inspire her to leave a mark on paper and canvas.
Mediums & Why I love them
CHARCOAL & PASTEL the powdery strokes on blank paper create mood and movement and in my mind will forever be classically stylish.
WATERCOLOURS that bleed and become a delicate wash into colours that flow and create soft and hard edges, it runs away with itself creating something different and beautiful with every stroke or drop or spray.
OILS & ACRYLICS are explosive and rough but the end product is elegantly flowing and emotionally charged.
POINTILLISM is another love, these delicate drawings are done with permanent ink pens, using various size tips to create small pin point dots which are used to lumini the darks and lights in the shadows and which take hours and hours of meticulous almost painful repetition of the hand to dot my way to completion.
