Tiffany Budd BA (Hons) is a British established fine artist, specialising in acrylic painting, coloured pencil and pastel drawing. www.tiffanybudd.co.uk She studied at Wimbledon School of Art and the University of Plymouth, gaining a degree in Textile Design. The course included Business Studies and Fine Art. After a career in Textile design and then Interior Design, the demand for her artwork increased so much that she became a full time artist. Tiffany’s subjects vary due to the requirements of her clients, but her main subjects are Rainbow Animals and ‘Fractured’ paintings. Over the past 13 years and after a visit to the Tate Gallery where The Russian Constructivists (1914-1913) were exhibiting Tiffany was completely inspired. When she got home she got out her trusty sketchbook and started some ideas. She named her style of work, ‘Fractured’. It looks as though the image has been shattered (like glass) and then put together again. Tiffany focuses on perspective and light enhancing those elements with different tones and depth of colour. She works in pastel, acrylic and coloured pencils. The Rainbow Animals are self explanatory- colourful and different ways of painting all types of creatures! Tiffany has sold paintings all over the world and has worked with Marks and Spencers UK on their Wall Art collection, as well as having her paintings reproduced onto ceramic tiles by Fiesta Studios.
