Tammy Flynn Seybold
Tammy Flynn Seybold has spent much of her life immersed in the subject matter that inspires her: the waters that surround the Sea to Sky Corridor. While she studied Art and Chemistry at UC Berkeley and earned her Masters in Art Conservation at Queens University, her work and life took her internationally, to places like France and Hong Kong. Flynn Seybold now calls Vancouver’s North Shore home and she can often be seen on her paddleboard with her two rescue dogs. Her works have been exhibited in Canada and internationally.
My keen interest in the objects which are brought ashore stems not just from their colour and form. I am interested in the narrative of these found objects; what story do they have to tell from their time in the pounding surf? I am enamoured with discarded objects such as glass that can be transformed into something polished and jewel-like through its time in the tumultuous tides. I have rendered such found objects – beach glass, shells, pebbles – in both large and small scale, but their petite size in nature lends itself so well to this miniature format. Being trained to repair and conserve fine paintings, I have spent many years working with extremely fine brushes and high detail.
