Tammy Linner is an award-winning artist with a passion for the beautiful tones and gradations obtained from graphite and charcoal media. Creating portraits is her specialty.

Her early career in art begin in 1991 when she became expert as a retouch and enhancement specialist in the world of portrait photography. Photographic education classes included classes in 1993 at the PPA International School for Professional Photography in Chicago and at Mid America School for Professional Photographers at Hawkeye Tech in Iowa. Nebraska's Photography Board of Directors in 1997 selected Tammy to be the Artist Representative.

Working on faces, all kinds and ages of faces, developed into a true love of portraiture, both formal and candid, posed and natural.

As time passed and the photography world changed, Tammy chose to concentrate on her drawing abilities, using natural media rather than creating art in the digital world. Tammy began drawing steadily, creating portraits for the parents of the children at her church. Soon her reputation as a talented artist expanded as she created more portraits for her friends and family.

In the last two years Tammy has successfully created over 65 portraits for her clients.


As a member of the community for over forty years, sharing a happy home with her husband and their family, Tammy believes God gives us all gifts with which we are to bless others -- and creating hand-drawn portraits is hers.
