A Creative Life
The paintings of Tami Hort
January 2 – February 28, 2014

Good painting is nothing else but a copy of the perfections of God and a reminder of His painting. ~ Michelangelo

Tami Hort is inspired by the words of Michelangelo through her interpretation of blazing sunsets, expansive mountain and prairie views, and natural beauty of the horses here in western Canada. Although the sights may be common, it is this exceptional splendor that provides a colorful muse for her as an artist.  Every day the same and yet each day ever changing with every moment a new experience.  She prefers to create images that replicate her experience, to portray timeless moments.  Along with landscapes, Tami loves to paint people, in all of their expression and colourful characteristics.  Her favorite medium is oil though she is also proficient in pastel, acrylic and watercolour.  

Tami was born in Saskatchewan where she received her first award for artwork in elementary school though she continues to be recognized having received many prestigious awards throughout her career.  She believes that anyone can be an artist and that developing an artist’s eye is as simple as learning the alphabet and in that belief teaches home school students, adults and seniors art enrichment as well as working with those in need of assisted living through her company The Artist Playground.
