Tiffany Brooks is a mural and plaster artist who works with interior and exterior walls. She was born in Connecticut and moved to Newport/Costa Mesa at 5 where she lived until coming to Riverside as a teenager. Tiffany has been creating since she was eleven - when she learned she could change anything with paint - and has now been working as an artist for over 35 years. She works full time on her projects and is one of the rare artists who has been able to support herself and her family through her art career. Although her art has paid the bills, art has also been a healing outlet and gives her so much joy especially when she gets to share her work with others.
Tiffany is mostly inspired by Romantic Renaissance styles and old vintage watercolors. If there is something to create, she is inspired. She is inspired by creating magical spaces and uses paint as her focus. Tiffany is also an avid gardener and decorator, and her home has been in many showcase tours including Panhellenic, vintage, garden, and RAM open studio tours. When home she creates, paints, gardens, and sews. Tiffany’s passion has always been to inspire other artists and the greatest moment of her career was when her favorite author Anne Rice wrote about her artwork in her book Angel Time. Tiffany hopes that her legacy as an artist will inspire young artists and make art more accessible to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity.
Tiffany has shown her work at RAM exhibitions over the past 18 years and her work is all over the Mission Inn Hotel, having worked as the Resident Artist for over 25 years. Tiffany has been featured numerous times in the Inland Empire Magazine and other publications. Her work was highlighted on EYE on LA and was featured in two PBS specials on the Mission Inn in the early 2000’s. Tiffany is also proud to have been involved with helping Artswalk in its early beginnings from 2000 - 2007 with Janice Penner and RDP. Tiffany looks forward to seeing art become a part of everything you see in our city with performing arts, music, painting, sculpture, poetry etc. She wants people to think of art when they think of Riverside.
