Welcome, I am Tammy Rice, a self-taught artist from Minnesota.
I have always naturally lived my own style of life, the way I dress, how I undertake things & what makes me tic. My heart is happy outside the normal & my art is no exception.
I create withdiscarded and used materials and recycling them into new distinctive creations. My collections are made from various discarded inner tubes and found objects. In my designs I use tractor, heavy equipment & bicycle inner tubes. Why my interest in inner tubes?
I was surprised to learn that inner tubes take years to decompose and that companies are not disposing of them properly because they have to pay fees to do so. I started to wonder how I could re-purpose them into something useful, something that would express me as an artist & you as an individual. That was back in 2007 & today, I love creating more than the day before.
My hope is to have my art express your own uncommon style. Hugs!!
