Spring News from Tiffany Budd

 News from the studio!

'Amsterdam'. My newest Fractured city drawing.
'Little City' has been Shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. The final cut will be announced at the end of May!
After a very sucessful solo show at Denbies Picture Gallery, I am now safely ensconsed back in my studio, keeping warm and creating new work and completing commissions from the show.
It is now the season of applying to open exhibitions and competitions. I must have applied to just over 8 shows, hoping for success and artistic validation. The good news is that I have heard back from two, very important shows. Firstly, The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. I have been shortlisted out of over 15,000 entries with a small coloured pencil drawing called 'Little City'. The next step in the process is to deliver the work up to the acedemy and keep my fingers crossed! Can you all do that for me too?!
Another show I am thrilled to have two drawings accepted for is the UK Coloured Pencil Society open Exhibition. This will make it my 10th year of being juried in, and therefore gain my Gold Status. The show opens in May at Stratford on Avon.

'The City is Stumbling' Accepted into the UKCPS Exhibition 2018



My Next Exhibition.

On the 16th May, I will be at the Art and Framing Roadshow with the Fine Art Trade Guild. 
I will be bringing a selection of work which will be for sale. This includes prints, colouring books, and original paintings ans drawings.
Kempton Park Racecourse - Main Exhibition Hall,
Staines Road East, Sunbury-on-Thames TW16 5AQ
All work can be purchase through my website shop.

Autumn News and shows

Hello all!

Is it Autumn already?! Crikey, where did the summer go? It felt like there was a definite 'off' switch just before the children went back to school! 

I am pleased to say I had a very sucessful Denbies solo show in April, and have booked another one (my fifth) in January 2018! I do love showing my work there. The variation of visitors, that perhaps wouldn't normally visit an art exhibition is brilliant. 

I have also become a member of the Surrey Art Fairs Group. The next pop up art exhibition is this Sunday 1st October at Gatton Park, Reigate. I have decided to exhibit and sell (hopefully) my pastel landscapes as Gatton is quite a tradtional and beautiful place, which I didn't think my Fractured work would fit necessarily.
Gatton Park. Pastel. 21cm x 29cm.

I have also been invited to take part in the Shere Art Fair, on the 21st October. It is the beginning of the Christmas (shhh don't say that word!) events! More details to follow. I also update my Facebook page on a daily basis, so do please pop along there.
I am also proud to say that I now have a proper shop that you can purchase original work, prints and other goodies. Here's the address for that.
Do go and take a look, and perhaps treat yourself?

I'm nearing completion of my next adult colouring book! I can't say much more than that now, but will let you know when it's up and on Amazon!

Here's yet another link to where you can purchase my last 4.

Summer time. Pastel. 21cm x 29cm. Framed and available at Gatton Park opo up fair.

I will be back for another blog very soon!

Thanks for reading.

Another solo show, and other stories......

Well here we are, spring has finally arrived! Although looking outdoors right now, I am finding it hard to believe- I am looking at hailstones and listening to thunder!
I've been working with The Weald School for these past few months, creating 3 murals based on the school ethics and beliefs. It has been an absolute pleasure working with the head mistress and the pupils so closely.
These are the murals I completed. The third one, based on their 'Habits of Mind' is almost complete!

Christian Values

Main School Mural.

In other  news. In April, I am holding another solo exhibition at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, Surrey. This is my fourth time I have exhibited there. It's such a lovely place, and a great day out. I will be exhibiting almost 100 original paintings, miniatures, pebble paintings and unframed originals and a few prints.
It begins on Monday 3rd April from 9.30 and ends Sunday 9th at 5.00pm. I will be there every day, painting, so do come and say hello!

Finally, I am thrilled and honoured to have been shortlisted for 'Up & Coming Artist' by the Fine Art Trade Guild. The awards ceremony will take place in May, and I won't know if I have won until then. Here is a list of the nominees- Good luck to us all!!

Happy New Year!

One of my New Year Resolutions is to make a concerted effort to update my blog more than twice a year. Huge apologies for my tardiness! And I wish you all a very Happy New Year.

Last year I left you in the midst of the Surrey Cow Parade. I completed Leafy Moo, and then was asked again to paint another cow, in two weeks! This one was for Kier Construction, in aid of Alzeimers Research. I managed to design and complete her in time!
The Highway Cow'd- for Keir Construction in aid of Alzeimers Research.

'Leafy Moo'- for Hart Brown Solicitors in aid of Cherry Trees Respite Home.
They were then auctioned off, along with 20 others at Sandown Racecourse in September. They both raised a total of just over £8,000! I was thrilled to bits and it was a fabulous gala evening.

I am grateful to still be in contact with Cherry Tree's Respite home, and have donated my time to them to create an ongoing mural for ther reception area. I also created a mini Leafy Moo as a souvenir from the Surrey Cow Parade!

Continuing my muraling (is that a word?!) I am now working with The Weald Primary School, Beare Green, Surrey, creating 4 murals for the front area of the school. Here's the first one, in place.
It looks small- But it's 2 metres by 1 metre high!

Another two have just been delivered, but are not in place yet. My next one will be designed with a very talented student at the school on Monday!

At the end of 2016, I created a new Christmas colouring book, to sit alongside my Fractured colouring book, and Alphabet Animal book. It sold well, and hopefully keep going all year! I have plans to create another book.This time a meditiative, relaxing theme.

Christmas Colouring Book- by Tiffany Budd 

I have been very busy with numerous commissions for my customers. Working closely with clients is something which inspires me and I find incredibly enjoyable. Two paintings which were requested, was from a gentleman who works for Wasps rugby club. He loved my Fractured style, especially the sport paintings. He kindly sent me reference photos of the team members and then developed two acrylic paintings based on them, their speed and their movement. I hope I have achieved the dynamism!

An award I have recently won was from the 'Light, Space Time Gallery'. I entered this piece below. The Jewellery Box. This is a little different for me as I generally don't copy photographs. However, I staged and positioned these items for the photo, so I guess there was a bit of creativity there! It is completed in coloured pencil, which is becoming a firm favourite for me as a medium. I have also just joined The Australian Coloured Pencil Society to add to my list of memberships!

Next on the list is a new solo exhibition at one of my favourite venues, Denbies Wine Estate.
It will be taking place there from Monday the 3rd April until Sunday the 9th. I will be exhibiting original artwork, my published books, sculpture and painted animals, inspired by my taking part in the cow parade! I hope you will come and visit me as I will be there every day painting.

'Gerald' the paper mache giraffe!

I promise to be back very soon!!! Bye for now.

Surrey Artists Open Studios

It's that time of year again, when Surrey's artists open up their studios to the public!
I am open this weekend- 11th and 12th June from 11am until 5pm, and the following weekend of the 18th and 19th.

All the details are on the Surrey Artists Open Studios website. I am part of an 'art trail' should you wish to make a day of it and see other artists local to myself! I am number 50. Look out for the orange balloons and signs!

I have pretty much all available work on show, as well as prints, cards and miniatures. Hopefully, something for everyone! I may even make you a cuppa!

Also on show, will be 'Leafy Cow'!
I have been sponsored by Hart Brown solicitors to paint a life sized cow in my design as part of the Surrey Cow Parade. This is a big art event throughout Surrey, with many artists and sponsors taking part. Each artist paints a cow in a design they submitted, then is displayed around Surrey, mine will hopefully be outside Debenhams in Guildford! Eventually it will be auctioned off for the sponsors chosen charity- Hart Browns is Cherry Trees.

The Studio and Mrs Leafy Moo's tent ready for her to arrived!
I hope you can come and visit me in Capel, Surrey the next two weekends!

A wonderful end to a busy year!

This year has been great. I have been doing lots of different work, commissions and projects. It's been a lot of fun. I have increased my working hours to accommodate demand.
I finally finished the St Marys School mural, where there was a presentation with the school governor, vicar, headmaster and the pupils. It was a lovely ending ceremony to the project.
I received the most enormous bouquet of stunning flowers!

Here are the pupils finishing off the bit I left! They did a great job.

And then this week, I got an email that I had to read twice to believe.
I was awarded runner up in the Art Gallery- Artist of the Year competition!! What a perfect end to a lovely year! I was so excited!
You can see my gallery, which the judges saw,  at
The Pond- 45cm x 65cm Caran D'Ache Museum Aquarelle Pencils  £450

Geometric Organic 20cm x 50cm Coloured Pencil on wood £400

Finally, I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you everyone for your support and interest.
