From Wausau's waow.com:
She's not the typical welder nor the typical artist, but Tammy Roy has certainly found her niche. And the mother of three is doing it in an eco-friendly way. Roy says, "We just started collecting scraps and we started piecing them together and creating some really interesting symmetrical shapes out of those repeated pieces." ...
Much of the technique Roy uses in the workshop, she learned from Mom and Dad. "They were in the repair business for a long time so I kinda grew up in a shop."
And what she's creating is catching on. Roy's happily selling her work in metropolitan areas around the country. "These little boutiques and upscale eco-stores are opening across the country." Those stores are focusing on what a lot of the nation is noticing right now--there's a need to be more eco-friendly. Getting a Roy original puts the buyer in touch with that trend, and a piece of the artist in their environment.
"I think it's really original. It's really personal and there's a little of me in every piece."
