With a BFA from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Tammy DeVoe paints abstract landscapes based on the beauty of environment and cultural details of varied travel destinations. The colors, shapes, energy, textures, trees, earth, sky, architecture, and cultural elements of any location, all contribute to the development of each painting. Sketches and studies become the start of a piece she works on with multiple layers. Her goal is to achieve a final painting that evokes the feeling of a specific location with simplified abstraction and appropriate colors. After spending 12 years in Manhattan as a designer and painter, Tammy now lives in NJ. She has years of experience with painting and design commissions, sales and freelance opportunities, and remains active in creative communities.
