Tammy Santana

I have always been creative, love to work in many different areas of design, and enjoy working with different mediums and tools. My background is in interior design and product design and development but I also enjoy graphic design, website design, visual merchandising, photography and surface design. I am constantly challenging myself to try new things and reach outside my comfort zone. I live in beautiful Southern California with my husband of 17 years and our creative 10 yr old daughter. I love working with many different kinds of tools and creating beautiful things that sparkle. I am so pleased to be a part of The Proxxon Tiny Tools Design Team!

Barbara Moore

Arkansas native Barbara Moore has established herself as an artist and a resident of Flippin, Arkansas, where she lives with her husband and son. Barbara first “fell in love with gourd art” when she attended a Gourd Festival in Missouri and began her journey of creating artwork from nature’s own.
Barbara went on to develop her own style and uses many techniques and mediums in her work, such as wood-burning, carving, cutting, embossing and painting. She further enhances her art using ink, dyes, paints, gold leaf and leather. “I continue to learn new techniques to improve my artistic skill.”
Barbara is a member of the American Gourd Society and the Missouri Gourd Society and she and her husband have also started a “Gourd Patch” in Arkansas which meets in her studio. She has received several awards for her original pieces in competition events. Barbara will also be one of the juried artists in “The Art Odyssey” which is a self-guided tour of artist’s studios in Baxter and Marion Counties in Arkansas for the third year. Barbara teaches classes for aspiring gourd artists in Mountain Home and at her private studio in Flippin. Her art is currently offered at Interior Design and Marketplace in Mountain Home Arkansas and also at her studio in Flippin
