JM: Tammy, when did your interest in painting start?

TAMMY: I always loved art. My oldest memory of creating was when I was around the age of 3.. I designed a doll "Chrystal Clean" LMBO out of paper, I just loved her! I graduated from College with a BA in Fine Arts and Elementary Ed, with that I pursued a career in teaching.

JM: Are there other artists that inspire you??

TAMMY:YES, I am very inspired by Children's Books. I especially love Eric Carle.

JM: When did you start selling your designs on eBay and do you sell anywhere else besides eBay?

TAMMY: I started selling my art on eBay a few years after I left my career as a teacher to be a stay at home mommy, It really helped fill the need to create and the extra income was a plus! I also sell my art and painted apparel in other online boutiques.

JM: Do you remember the first item you sold on eBay?

TAMMY: Yes, It was a painting, I think it sold under $5 but I was so happy to actually sell something!

JM: Where did come up with your name?

TAMMY:I wanted something cute and catchy, it seemed to work!

JM: Do you belong to any boutique group?

TAMMY: I just recently became groupless. I am looking to join a group again, I am looking for the perfect fit and enjoying guesting with many groups for the time being.

JM: What are your favorite thing to paint?

TAMMY: Princesses, I just love painting anything girly.

JM: If you could learn some new skills, what would they be?

TAMMY: I would LOVE to learn to sew. I am always blown away be the extreme talent I see on ebay.

JM: If you could travel anywhere, where would that be?

TAMMY: I would love to see Europe!

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides painting?

TAMMY: I enjoy photography, gardening and decorating.

JM: Anything else you would like to add?

TAMMY: I would like to thank Journal Modiste! I am honored to be chosen as the featured designer for the week:)
