Tammy de Zilva is a Surface Pattern Designer behind her business Loopla – a Brisbane based business creating vibrant and playful designs with striking and eye-catching colourways which are often inspired by the vintage retro vibe of the seventies. Behind each lovingly created pattern is inspiration drawn from nature, everyday encounters, play with her son and her extensive travels.

The first 20 years of Tammy’s career was in IT. After completing some studies in colour, design and surface design, she took a career change into Surface Design and hasn’t looked back. She won two awards during her studies – Porters Paints wallpaper design award and a Highly Commended award. Her biggest goal is to bring joy to others with her art. Most recently, Tammy has been featured in the book Pattern Pulse amongst 100 of Australia’s top Surface Design talent.

Angelo Andronis May 2024

After just a one 2 hour session I felt like I had achieved more than I had in 12 months of trying to teach myself. Tammy was well prepared, the lesson showed me the basics to get started and also more complex procedures that I required.
I highly recommend Tammy for entry level to more advanced lessons

Teacher's response

I'm delighted to hear this Angelo. Thank you for a lovely review. Please let me know if you have any questions.


Laura Mills May 2024

My class with Tammy was fabulous! I feel like I have a much better understanding of Procreate than before I started. We were able to take our time to go over all of the different settings and what each meant and have a little practice. I would totally recommend this class!

Teacher's response

Thank you such a lovely review Laura! I'm thrilled to hear that you found my Procreate Essentials session helpful and that you now have a better understanding of using Procreate.

If you ever have any questions or want to delve deeper into any aspect of Procreate, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Tammy was a lovely teacher and we discovered so much about Procreate in this class! Would highly recommend her. We loved learning a little bit about animation.

Thoroughly enjoyed this class. Tammy is a friendly, open, responsive teacher and I will be keen to follow up on her next course. Although a beginner in Procreate, I had ‘played’ around in the app but Tammy showed us all how much there is to learn and what amazing scope there is - if/when you know how. I need more!

Teacher's response

I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed my class Beverley! I hope to have my next class available online to book in the next week. Stay tuned :)
