About Tammy Delaney
I am an emerging artist who experiments with various painting techniques and who paints from my photographs. I am self-taught, as I learned various painting techniques from other artists' online tutorials. I have taken creative art courses in painting, printmaking, wood working, drawing, silk screen and pottery.
Nature has been a constant theme in my work. I am inspired by the beauty of sunsets, colors and patterns found in flowers, trees, forests, ocean and wildlife.
I consider Vancouver home with its very warm and welcoming art community. Eight years ago, I found my voice through photography. During this time, I completed a wheel throwing class at Claytek Pottery Studios. In 2016, I organized and coordinated weekly art drop-in workshops, and collaborated with local artists in the Kitsilano community. Soon after, I was invited to give monthly Art workshops at the Senior's Cafe at St. Philip's Anglican Church.
I obtained a Bachelor of Social Work from McGill University, a professional Graphic Design degree from Dawson College and a Creative Arts degree from John Abbott College. More recently, I graduated from Vancouver's Master Recycling Program and was a member of Vancouver's Zero Waste Club.
