About the Artist

Tammy Batson Stephens has been a resident of Covington, KY for most of her life. The daughter of local architect, Bill Batson, Tammy's parents recognized and encouraged her love of art from an early age. As a child growing up in the Cincinnati area, Tammy studied art at the Baker-Hunt Foundation and Cincinnati Art Museum. Tammy continued to study art throughout her high school years, graduating from Simon Kenton High School in Independence, KY. From there Tammy pursed her post secondary education at the Columbus College of Art and Design where she majored in illustration and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

After graduation, Tammy's professional career has included positions as Assistant to the Director of the Carnegie Arts Center, Teacher at the Baker–Hunt Foundation, and Arts Coordinator for the Department of Parks in Decatur, IL. In 1999, while living in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Tammy officially launched her own business, TBS fine Arts, offering portraits, mural work, finishes, and interior design services.

In 2002 Tammy returned to Covington. Since that time, she has painted numerous murals in homes and businesses throughout the Greater Cincinnati/Northern KY area. Just a few of the places where you will see Tammy's murals include Remke's Markets, the 6th Street branch of the Campbell County Library, Every Child's Playground at Sawyer Point, and FOX19 television.
