Tammy Winand, USA Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement Since 1992 I have lived and worked in multiple US states and 4 other countries. I have worked in various western American national parks and done volunteer work with Tibetan refugees in India and Nepal. My photography reflects these travels.
Artist's Statement: My work focuses on connections: between the past & present, between diverse cultures, between man & nature, even between color & form.
I am strongly influenced by ancient civilizations, sacred spaces, lifestyles of "exotic" lands, & the power of nature to reclaim what man has built.
My goal is to translate my life experience through symbolism which can be interpreted by a broad audience.
