  • 21. Tammy BalityBiographyAbout Tammy BalityAs an only child growing up on the Colorado farm her family originally homesteaded in1875, Tammy Bality shared a special connection with animals: The horses, calves, dogs, cats,and birds were her friends.Ever since she could hold a crayon, art has been Tammy’s form of expression. Tammy nowcreates sculptures that capture animals’ life force and honor their spirits.Compelled to createTammy has always felt a bond with animals and aimed to recreate that feeling in art, but itwasn’t until the 1988 Loveland Sculpture Show that she felt compelled to try her hand atsculpting bronze.Drawing on a variety of life experiences and technical workshops, Tammy developed herown signature style utilizing different techniques and media to create unique pieces repre-senting our interconnectedness with animals.Mixing media and melding heritagesPeople have always had a spiritual connection to animals through the millennia, whether it’s through Native American folkloreor Celtic mythology, and Tammy aims to honor that through her artwork.Growing up in Colorado, Tammy loved the tributes to animals incorporating antlers, fur, feather and stone seen in NativeAmerican artwork. These tributes lead the artist to delve into her own heritage, exploring Swedish, Irish and Scottish historyfor inspiration and she was thrilled to discover that her Druid and Viking ancestors also had animal totems and tributes.Tammy combines traditional influences with a variety of media and sculpting techniques to create innovative art that givesvoice to nature’s spirit.She sculpts horses, dogs, birds of prey, bulls and bears from clay, bronze and crystal, incorporating silver and stone as well.Tammy enjoys exploring the strengths of each medium – the freedom and spontaneity of ceramic, the strength and precision ofbronze, the luminosity and intrigue of crystal – and complementing their weaknesses with the strengths of the others.Art on a Grand ScaleIn the scope of Tammy’s body of work, you will find delicate Raku horses and Journey Ponies, life-like bronze representa-tional pieces ranging from miniature to monumental, spiritual Celtic-inspired totems and tributes, and breathtaking birds ofprey.Tammy’s work is available in collections nationwide and at Chisholm Gallery in Millbrook, New York. 21
