Tammy Frand is originally from Long Island, New York. She had a line of handmade coaster and trivets. Tammy makes use of layering mixed media for a contemporary piece of 3D art. Using her original illustrations as a base, she moves that through a digital process and then applies it as a finish on ceramic tiles, which are then layered to form an organic piece of art. Tammy uses a ceramic tile coaster and/or trivet as an alternative to flatstock prints of her work, creating a more functional use of art.
