About Tammy Arca
A native to the Pacific Northwest, Tammy feels most home among the mountains and tall trees of the Cascade Range in Washington state. She lived in Arkansas during her late teens into young adulthood where she earned an Associate in Technical Arts degree in Graphic Arts from University of Arkansas extension program. After working several years producing copy ready commercial and private logos and line art, she decided to start her own business as a freelance graphic artist and to devote more time to her first love - fine arts.
Tammy first began her journey as an artist in the 5th grade, where she produced watercolor sketches that were displayed within the school district with other young talent, often winning awards. During her early teens, she studied under a private art tutor who introduced her to oil painting, now her medium of choice. Many workshops and classroom instruction along with self-guided research of art history and style has brought her where she is today.
Her works can be found in private homes and businesses, from Arkansas to the Pacific Northwest. She has produced many commissioned paintings and several murals. Tammy currently works full-time in her private studio located in Lakewood, Washington. Her hobbies include gardening and spending time in the outdoors, where she often finds her greatest inspiration.
