Tammy Kushnir has been an artist her whole life. She finds her passion in her creations . She originally studied art history at Temple University with the intention of working in an auction house. Instead she decided to stay home with her children and raise them shortly after getting married. While staying home with them, she discovered a love of mixed media art. Having only drawn her whole life, working with various objects to create keepsake boxes and book art was an amazing challenge and helped get her into many publications and write two crafts books. As her boys got older, she began going back to drawing and introducing painting to her palette as she created digital art. She began working with various licensing companies and started creating for Oopsy Daisy and ElephantStock.
In 2017, she got serious about painting after visiting Alaska. Painting mainly animals, she has now expanded that to surreal landscapes vacillating from dark to light. Working mainly in acrylics, she also enjoys going back to the roots of mixed media, incorporating, ink, colored pencils, modeling paste, and other textures into some of her creations.
Her artwork has won awards and has been seen in various brick- and -mortar and online gallery shows.
She is currently represented by Kowen Gallery in Denver, Colorado, Graphite Gallery in New Orleans, Louisiana and City Art Gallery in Columbia, South Carolina. She resides in Chalfont, PA with her husband and two teen sons.
