About Me - Tammy Tappan Resident Artist & Founder Equestrian Artists of Tryon

Sometimes you have to "buck" the system...find your own path...listen to that inner nagging voice.  Nobody ever said it would be easy.  In fact, most will discourage you because it is exactly the opposite!

That pretty much sums up my journey.  I have spent decades trying to figure "it" out and do the responsible thing (whatever that means).  And then I ended up here - an artist in progress, painting and sculpting horses.  My work is inspired by a lifetime of loving horses, dogs and my kids.  The latter all grown up now, it is time.  I am a work in progress in more ways than one.  When it comes to my art, I look back and see the development of my personal style.  I appreciate the perfection that others have accomplished and I have simply practiced.  I aspire the perceived freedom of impressionism.  Fluid brush work and the ability to capture the essence of a moment in clay are part of my ongoing quest.  My work is an evolution of those endeavors.

I enjoy capturing the spirit of the horse and the connection between horse and rider through a variety of mediums.  Most recently, I am fascinated by the symbolism of equestrian artifacts that once facilitated the communication between horse and human.  My series "Once Upon A Horse" is a collection of paintings and sculptures that explore that subject matter.      I welcome the input of anyone that is inclined to share their perspective on my work.  Drop me an email or give me a call.  I would love to explore the possibilities with you.
