program with many amazing ladies that are now, very dear friends. Some of these ladies are in their 70’s and kick my butt. I hope to be like them when I grow up!" Getting To Know Tammy Bailey What has been an unexpected barrier and how did you overcome it? Honestly, it’s that inner critic. That little voice in my head that I often need to correct. But at 59, I spent too many years worrying about what other people have thought about me. I’ve learned to ask for help in all areas of my life. To trust my inner strength and intuition. If you could choose to meet anyone for lunch who would it be? I would choose my mother from whom I inherited my creative and artistic talents. I would love to compare notes. and ask her why she never pursued them as I understand how healing the artistic journey has been for me and how sharing my art gives me such great joy. Most of all just to give her a big hug and say thank you. What is the best advice you have ever received? It’s difficult two isolate it to one particular piece of advice. However, in art, the best piece of advice I ever received was to create a space that was dedicated to creating art. Thank you, Ellen Bradley Cheung. What is something surprising about you that most people don’t know? I’ve been sober for more than 17 years. But that’s a whole other story. What is your key strength? I believe that I am tenacious. Also, I’ve learned to ask for help. It is difficult to grow in a vacuum. And I have a wonderful community of women who mentor me in life. Be it in art, friendship, spirituality, emotional, or through other activities. A wonderful husband, children, grandchildren, and pets. This is my strength and support. When have you been most satisfied in life? I choose today, to live in gratitude. I have not always been grateful but today I am! With gratitude comes huge satisfaction! And I have my art!
