Let me take a moment to introduce myself, my name is Dave Tamkus. I am the owner of Tamkus Art & Design located in Central Pennsylvania. I have a degree in Graphic Design and have been an artist as long as I can remember. I consider myself a journey-man artist, I dabble in quite a few mediums. I know my way around logo design and I love drawing (especially on my iPad). Over the past 3 years I dove head first into painting, with a bit of noodling in sculpting.
I came from a background in offset and letter press, where I worked for the first decade of my career. Then I moved onto advertising, where I lead a team of very talented designers for almost another decade. Drawing and painting became an escape for the dull-drums of corporate life. I challenged myself to create more art. Since then, I have been very fortunate to share several gallery walls with super talented artists. I also had the opportunity to challenge myself through freelance opportunities in logo design, commissioned acrylic paintings, and even painting a logo on the side of a building about 45 feet off the ground.
I will be periodically posting blogs on all sorts of art related topics. If there is something you would like me to write about, reach out and and let me know. Keep visiting the Absynthe Gallery to check out top-notch art, and please participate – we like participation here!
