About

Tiffany Minty

image433

Tiffany graduated from Brunel University in 1993 with a honours degree in Textile Design and Surface Pattern.

 

Having spent many years working as a textile designer, she has always enjoyed creating art and wanted to share her passion.


In 2003 she completed a postgraduate certificate in education and became a teacher of art in a leading independant school until 2015.


She now works as a professional artist and is a mum of two children on the autistic spectrum. She produces her painting from her studio at her home, a 17th century Somerset farmhouse in the beautiful Chew Valley. 


Her paintings like her garden reflect a sense of fun and broad spectrum of colour. Radiating in happiness the appreciation of the simple details of life.



Influences

“Five years ago, I moved to the beautiful Chew Valley, which is nestled on the edge of the Mendip Hill’s . Since our arrival here, I have been continually inspired and in awe of the natural beauty, charm and calm that radiates from this area. 


I have a growing interest in wildlife and love observing the changing seasons, which fuels my passion for gardening. Last year I grew many of the flowers that bounce above our perimeter wall from seed. This year I have germinated many of the annuals from last year. 


My Home, animals and surroundings are such an inspiration. I try to reflect the happiness I draw from them into my work.”

Inspiration

 “I paint for pure selfish endulgence and mindfulness. But along the way I wish to spread a little happiness and joy from the simple things that surround us all.


From the small detail that can pass you by unnoticed, but can make you happy to the core. 


I love embellishing our home with details of history, pattern, colour and most of all the joy of our family.”
