Tiffany Budd BA (Hons) UKCPS Gold is a British established fine artist, specialising in acrylic painting, coloured pencil and pastel drawing.
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. This works perfectly around also being a mum of two!
Tiffany works in a unique style she has termed ‘Fractured’ focusing on perspective, movement and light. It is inspired by the Cubists and also the Russian Constructivists.

Tiffany also has created an imaginary place called ‘Mulberry Hill’ with little houses, roads and pathways, leading your imagination on a lovely journey!
