Tiffani Taylor

I don't know why its taken me so long to write about Tiffani- but its long overdue! Tiffani is an extremely talented painter living in Savannah, Georgia. I met her at the Savannah College of Art and Design where she received her undergraduate and graduate degrees in Art History and Painting- not to mention she was her class valedictorian!

Tiffani is most well known for her lush poppy paintings on canvas as well as ceramics. My favorites are her paintings that incorporate vintage bird imagery from cards originally given to her by her grandmother.You can see below she is as beautiful and kind as she is talented! Her clients can't help but love her and she already has a huge loyal following. Recently, Mary Englebreit's Home Companion did a fantastic profile on Tiffani-read it here. Tiffani's work has been collected by such notable people as Vogue's editor at large, Andre Leon Talley, Oprah Winfrey and Diane von Furstenberg!

You can see she uses many layers of vintage ephemera together with her painted imagery resulting in a lovely rich textural appearance that has to be experienced in person to fully appreciate!

Katie & Amy- You are both so right! Tiffani is a joy to be around as well as an extremely talented artist. She exceeds expectations in her paintings, as well as in useful and decorative pottery. If you are fortunate enough to know Tiffani personally, you are indeed blessed.
