Barbara Tiffany joined the Crealdé faculty in 2012 and currently serves as the Interim Director of Painting & Drawing. The experienced artist and educator has exhibition and award records that span nearly three decades, including numerous solo exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the Southeastern United States. Barbara is a classical painter, whose education includes mentorship during the 1980s by legendary Central Florida painter Maury Hurt. Her paintings explore a wide range of subjects. Her goal is to convey to the viewer a sense of participating wonder, leading to unexpected observations, either through extreme realism or abstraction. She is an experienced art educator with a broad understanding of the arts, and she has juried many prestigious art competitions and festivals.

Artist's Statement

"With awe and wonder, I am inspired by many things, complex or simple, as long as there is light. With hope, my work will be a means by which the observer will become a participant."

Background

Having been raised in Central Florida, I have loved art and nature my entire life, knowing at a very early age that art would be a big part of my future. Beginning my career as a commercial artist, I always found time to draw. In 1980, I began participating in outdoor art festivals, as well as museum exhibits and competitions throughout the state and on a national level, winning awards along the way.

My early works of art were exclusively graphite and colored pencil. In 1986, private lessons with Maury Hurt taught the classical approach to painting while introducing the effects of light. This dramatically changed my work and also my approach to teaching, which I begin in 1984. From 1987 until 2008, I maintained a studio at The Maitland Art Center.
