While the hint of a Maryland accent reveals east coast roots, Colorado has been Tammi Brazee’s home for over two decades. She is a professional artist and science geek, holding two graduate degrees, one in environmental science and the other in visual art. This unusual combination of interests has had a profound influence on Brazee’s work, keeping it suspended somewhere between recognizable reality and imaginary narrative. When she’s not in the studio pondering the relationship between things and slinging paint, she can be found wandering along a mountain trail, guidebook, binoculars, and magnifying glass in hand, conversing with creatures met along the way.
