In 2018 after freelancing for studios such as Bart Kresa Studio, Fiction LA, HuevoCartoon, Disney, and more, Tiffanie moved back to San Diego to secure a painting studio while teaching and freelancing. Although Tiffanie is just making her debut into the fine art world, her oil and gouache work has been accepted in over 20 galleries and shows, including the CAC Gold Medal exhibition for three years in a row from 2019-2021. She also was invited to have her first solo show featuring her gouache work at Crary Art Gallery in Warren, Pennsylvania in 2019. Tiffanie also loves to teach; she was an oil and gouache painting instructor at Art on 30th in San Diego, and has taught a number of plein air gouache workshops around southern California and internationally as well, including Curacao and London.
As a digital and traditional artist, one of Tiffanie’s passions is sharing how she applies and interchanges the concepts, techniques and philosophies from one medium to another, which prompted her to start her own mentorship business. Tiffanie now successfully and independently runs her own digital and gouache painting mentorships, where she mentors students online for 8 weeks to help them level up in their painting skills from the fundamentals up. In the last year in a half, Tiffanie has mentored over 25 students from literally all around the world, including Europe, Asia, Australia, and South America.
As a fine artist and filmmaker, Tiffanie is always striving to explore the possibilities of how she can combine her traditional painting skills with digital media to create engaging narratives. She believes that film and fine art will always be powerful mediums that can connect different cultures through great storytelling, and she hopes to bring those unique stories to life, whether it be through beautiful landscapes, animated films, or heartfelt illustrations.
