Named Best-Run City in Massachusetts by The Boston Globe, Somerville packs an urban-planning punch.

About Tammy Ricker

gallery shot of me with paintingPainting for me is a way to explore my inner world of feelings,  consciousness and reason. Working intuitively with color and  line I work the surface, sometimes applying many layers, letting  each painting assert itself. Inspired by everything related to  nature, sometimes shapes appear that remind me of fragments of the world around us, leaves, flowers, water, sky, buildings, even people. For me this represents the quest for balance between the inner and outer worlds. The underlying focus that ties it all together is an interest in connections – connections to ourselves, to each other and to the world as a whole. My paintings are a deeply personal and intuitive expression of the times we live in and it is my hope that they will continue to evolve from a deeper place that will evoke a state of reflection through which the viewer is transported momentarily and returns enriched.

After studying painting and sculpture at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston I lived and worked for many years in Jamaica Plain. My studio is now located in a beautiful coastal town in southern Maine. Also, an avid Instagrammer, you can see more of my daily practice here: @tjr111
