As an only child growing up on the Colorado farm her family originally homesteaded in 1875, Tammy Bality shared a special connection with animals: The horses, calves, dogs, cats, were her friends. Ever since she could hold a crayon, art has been Tammy's form of expression. Tammy now creates sculptures that capture animals' life force and honor their spirits.
Drawing on a variety of life experiences and sculpting workshops, Tammy developed her own signature style utilizing different techniques and mediums to create sculpture representing our interconnectedness with animals and capturing not only their images, but also their spirits.
Tammy enjoys exploring the strengths of each medium she sculpts in – the freedom and spontaneity of raku fired clay, the strength and precision of bronze, the luminosity and intrigue of crystal – and complementing their weaknesses with the strengths of the others. Tammy’s work is found in private, corporate and museum collections in the U.S., Europe and Japan.
Tammy’s other passion is her horses. In the last few years, she has begun to compete in AQHA Ranch Horse Versatility classes with her gelding Bam Bam, a son of Mr. Sun O’Lena, purchased from the Wagonhound Ranch in Wyoming.
