Lo­ca­tion: US Web: www.tiffany­tur­rill.com Email: tif­fany@tiffany­tur­rill.com me­dia: Wa­ter­colour, white char­coal, wa­ter­colour pen­cils Tif­fany moved to Cal­i­for­nia for col­lege and stayed to work for var­i­ous video game stu­dios in the Bay Area for nine years. Re­cently, the artist made the jump to go full-time free­lance and seek out the sto­ries she wants to tell. Her work has ap­peared in chil­dren’s pic­ture books, RPGs and table­top games.

“I’m in­ter­ested in telling sto­ries with my images, es­pe­cially those with a mythic or folk­loric bent,” she says, “but chil­dren’s lit­er­a­ture, sea crea­tures and di­nosaurs will al­ways be my first loves.” When she’s not work­ing, she en­joys bad films, laugh­ing at non­sense on the in­ter­net, or drink­ing too much tea.

“I had the plea­sure of at­tend­ing the Il­lus­tra­tion Master Class, and this was the piece I pro­duced while I was there. The prompt was a novella that could be de­scribed as Wind in the Wil­lows meets Sam Peck­in­pah.”

2 East of the Sun, West of the Moon Wa­ter­colour, wa­ter­colour pen­cils and white char­coal, 13x19in

“A sim­ple win­tery im­age, pulled from the Nor­we­gian fairy tale. Sto­ries of chil­dren thrown into a for­bid­ding wilder­ness with only an­i­mals to help them al­ways res­onate with me.”

Imag­ineFX crit “De­spite the con­trast in sub­jects, both of Tif­fany’s images show great com­po­si­tion and colour choices. And I re­ally want to see more of her sto­ries fea­tur­ing a cigar-chomp­ing, pis­tol-tot­ing rat.” Alice Pat­tillo, Staff Writer
