My Tammy Exhibition

Welcome to my exhibition.  Of all the fashion dolls made in the 1960s, the Ideal Tammy was definitely one of the best.  I still have my childhood Tammy, and still view the doll as a work of art.  I have yet to find two dolls that are exactly alike.  The Tammy pictures shown below are dolls that were rescued from attics, trash bins, yard sales, eBay, and various other places. 

I am a professional artist of many years, and my forte is visual communications.  From a fine oil painting to designing corporate logos, my experience has taken me a long way.  However, of all the work I've done, my Tammy Portfolio is one of which I am most proud.   May you and yours find joy in viewing my exhibit.

Ideal Tammy:  VikisFinds PhotoOp Contest Ingenue

The VikisFinds forum is a place where doll artists from around the world meet and share information about their craft.    The best part about this forum is that it was not restrictive to just one doll type.  The photo op contests are for dolls of all types and sizes.

It was my desire to do something special with my rescues that required extensive work.  The VikisFinds Forum hosts PhotoOp Contests for all types of dolls, and dolls are judged on various levels in different categories.  I never entered a doll contest before, but wondered how an old rescued Tammy doll would stand up against the newest, most exclusive Gene, Silkstone, Esme, Barbie, Tyler, Tonner, and other dolls on the market today dressed and/or customized by some of the finest artists in the world.   It is an honor that so far my Tammy rescues have received enough votes to either win or place in one or more categories entered.  (The results are not in for the "Strut Your Stuff" contest.).  I am both proud and humbled by this.
