Collage and hand-lettered lyrics in altered book by Tammy Garcia #alteredbook #handlettering #collage #artjournal

Hi. I'm Tammy.

Here’s what I do: create mixed media art at the intersection of exploration + curiosity. For me, it’s about the process rather than the finished work. I know that in time, and with lots of practice, that end result will get better and better. And here’s the thing: life is better with art than without.

I teach online art journaling and creativity workshops.

If you like to zoom out the lens and contemplate creativity and the creative process… and you love drawing and art journaling… and want to incorporate more art into your life? Go grab a Daisy Yellow Zine and brew a mug of Earl Grey and enjoy!

Each June + July since 2011, I have facilitated the annual Index-Card-a-Day Challenge {ICAD}. The 9th annual creative community challenge will run June 1 - July 31, 2019. The goal is to do a tiny, approachable creative project each day... on an index card! Yup! Thousands of people around the globe make an index card every day for 61 days. You've absolutely, positively got to join the fun!

My work has been published in print in A World of Artist Journal Pages, by Dawn DeVries Sokol [2015], and in Featuring Magazine, a print magazine published in Amsterdam, Featured Blogger in Issue #2, Article: Creative Inspiration in Issue #4 [2012-2013].

You can find interviews & podcasts scattered about, including: Creativity Matters Podcast Episode #189: The Raven,[2016], Dirty Footprints Studio; 21 Secrets Conversations with Connie Solera [2015], and a Bonus interview from A World of Artist Journal Pages, Dawn DeVries Sokol [2015], Creative Living Podcast with Jamie Ridler [2014]. I also wrote a series of articles for Create Mixed Media, including Journal Fresh [2011].
