About Tammy Pilon
Growing up on Vancouver Island, Tammy was influenced by the sky, land, water and trees. The love of the light on the land has always been a strong influence guiding her to create dramatic landscapes in watercolour, textural acrylics and impressionistic paintings in oil.
Tammy began as a graphic artist and illustrator and worked as an art instructor for almost 20 years at the Port Moody Art Centre. She has always been a popular teacher and was voted favourite Art Teacher of the Tri-City news readers two years in a row. She is also involved in community art projects. She coordinated five community murals as well as three murals in elementary schools during artist-in-residencies. She continues to do workshops in the Tri-City area and now offers private classes in all media at her Port Coquitlam studio.
"Practicing my art gives me an opportunity to come to the quiet centre where something greater than myself can work through me" -Tammy Pilon
