Tammy Kushnir Biography

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 continues to do so .

In 2017, she got serious about painting after visiting Alaska. Painting mainly animals, she has now expanded that to abstract landscapes vacillating from dark to light as well as a focus  on houses on stilts representing mental health.
