Tiffany Charesse is a native of Atlanta, GA, where she studied and graduated at The Art Institute with a BFA in Graphic Design. Tiffany combines her love for portraiture and her background in graphic design to create unique figurative works with geometric flair. Her technique is characterized by smooth blends and a soft richness that she achieves by combining PanPastel powders with pastel pencils. Using photographs of family and friends, Tiffany draws her inspiration from their individual testimonies to develop intimate narratives as an underlying layer behind each portrait. She often explores themes of consciousness, connectivity and empathy in her works.
Tiffany was honored by V103 as an Emerging ATL Artist, she participated in the Hyundai Artist Village during ONE Music Fest, and collaborated with ColorATL for the Vol. 2 edition. She has also curated art shows and artist talks at the Hapeville Maker Space and is an active supporter of the arts in her community. Her work has been on display in the Congressional Hall of Washington D.C., The Mable House Arts Center, Mason Fine Art Gallery, Peters Street Station, Notch 8 Gallery, and Zucot Gallery.
