Artist Biography

 

Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Southern California artist, Tammy Greenwood’s work encompasses the heavy influence of her deep Southern, Catholic roots. 

Her love of the arts began at St. Vincent’s College Preparatory School for girls where she studied art for four years.  After a 20-year career in the fashion industry as a stylist and make-up artist, she returned to her formal art studies in 2008. Graduating with highest honors from Cal State San Bernardino she earned her BA in Studio Art studying printmaking, sculpture, and painting. She has earned the honor of being a member of the Golden Key Honor Society.

Introduced to the many mediums through a Studio Art degree, she considers herself a mixed media artist, moving between two-dimensional and three-dimensional realms. Her Southern, Catholic upbringing becomes apparent in her use of iconic subject matter. The works are richly woven in symbolism with an expressive palette that reflects personal subjects of infertility, life, death, and immortality.

 Her work has been shown in galleries and Art Centers in Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino and the Pomona Art District and is held in private collections.

 She currently resides with her husband and Border collie in the hills of Temecula California where she continues her work in her home studio.

 

             “The richness of Louisiana culture and ritual is a wonderful visual playground for any artist. The melding of cultures, religious iconography, and storytelling is a constant source of inspiration. It is through this cross culture inspiration of African American, Spanish, and French folklore that allows me to breath new life into these myths, awakening the subconscious to begin its process of healing and renewal.”   -  Tammy Greenwood
