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.

Three book releases!

I hope you've all had a lovely summer! I spent most of it with my children, fitting in artwork where I could! The joy of being an artist is that you can create paintings in your head, ready for when you get back into the studio. I was still armed however, with my camera and sketchbook at all times!

In September I published my first book. A 'how to' book of how to create my Fractured style of art. It contains various step by step projects and ideas of doing your own painting. It has been selling nice and steadily, often getting most sales when I do my demonstrations at Art societies.
It is called 'Look at it Differently and create a Fractured painting' It is available from Amazon with free delivery, for £16.00

Look at it Differently and Create a Fractured Painting.

I also began to notice the increase in adult colouring books. My mum, last year, said I should do a colouring book in my Fractured style, and so began the idea in my head. I have now produced a book, 'The Fractured Art of Tiffany Budd'. The book has 20 outlines, based on my Fractured paintings, ready for you to fill in, in your own colour way! It has one page of the full colour paintings as inspiration, but don't feel like you have to copy them.

This is available also from Amazon, for £12.99.

 This week is also a big week, as I have released my third book, a children's colouring book! Alphabet Animals. 26 pages of letter and animals which children and young at heart will love to colour in!

Here is the link to Amazon, where these three books are all for sale! With Christmas coming up, why not treat yourself, your family and friends!

The Creatives- Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking, Surrey

To get myself properly, 'back in the saddle' I have organised a week's exhibition at Denbies Wine Estate, Dorking. I have exhibited there twice before as a solo show, but this time invited other fantastic artists and craftspeople to show their work too.
It began on Monday, and I will be there until Sunday.
We have artists showing glass design, lino prints, landscape paintings and wood. It's all fabulous, and I really think there is something for everyone.

I will be there Thursday 16th, Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th, when we take everything down.

Here's a little peek at what it looks like!

I hope to see some of you there!

Leaving you in the lurch!

In my last post, I left you all on tenterhooks as to whether I won the Caran D'ache competition. (Sorry about that! Turns out looking after two very active children, left me little time to dedicate to my artwork). Well I'm pleased to say that I came 2nd! It was an extremely fun evening and met a lot of interesting people including the CEO of Caran D'Ache Jean Paul Saussure. I put a few names to faces too.
Here's me receiving my prize and flowers with the CEO. 

And me by my painting!
