Tiffanie has been instrumental in my artistic progress. As a self-taught painter, I didn't quite understand how light worked nor how important shapes were to a painting.

I recently landed a concept art job with Walt Disney Imagineering, and I believe without Tiffanie this could not have happened at all.

My art has immensely progressed to the point other people started consistently commenting on my progress.

I am excited to continue my studies and self-development with Tiffanie and grow further as an artist!

I've been looking for a mentorship that would push me to get to that next level in my art, and I found it in this mentorship. Not only that, now I feel that I have a clearer objective in what I want to become as an artist. That's one of the things I'm loving from this mentorship, not only the in-depth aspect of the lectures but the inside and inner working of a new way of thinking that Tiffanie wants us to acquire and how to appreciate the art of the master painters.

Every class I take I feel like I opened a new door of possibilities with all the new knowledge that is brought. That you see me each week trying and experimenting how to utilize this knowledge in my daily paintings and how to improve them. The Notan studies and Grids were game changer for me, I find myself organizing and designing in a more proficient way. I'm super excited to see what's next. Thank you Tiffanie, you're a great mentor.

Throughout my artistic journey, I've had countless different art teachers and mentors, both in & out of art school. But never have I had someone break down & teach painting the way Tiffany did. With in-depth lectures, comprehensive demos, and great feedback, she opens doors to new ways of thinking about value, light, and color.

I've found a tremendous amount of growth in my work, even over a short amount of time. I couldn't recommend Tiffanie's mentorship more to anyone who's looking to improve their painting skills, either traditionally or digitally! Thanks for being such an amazing mentor!
