Piece description from the artist
Leap Of Faith is a surrealistic expression that was inspired by something which we’re all afraid to do at some point in our lives: take a leap of faith. Sometimes you feel compelled to take a big step along your life’s path that from a social perspective may appear to run against rational logic and other’s advice. Going against the norm or making a huge shift is a scarily independent place to be, yet when you feel this choice so passionately in your heart, mind and soul, you have to take the risk to make the move, no matter what the consequences will be.
Tiffany Davis-Rustam loves to create colorful abstract paintings that conjur surrealistic expressions of emotion, and inspire deep connections to joy.
After studying Graphic Design at The University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, Tiffany moved to New York City to create layouts for fashion magazines. When this didn't satisfy her creative passions, a trip around the globe and a move to Hawaii inspired fresh artistic in mixed media photography and abstract painting.
Soon a move to Los Angeles prompted her to run her own eco-savvy graphic design agency, creating award-winning publications and image branding. During this time she started doing and showing nature photography & digital imagery as a hobby, which soon became replaced by painting, as a way of creating with her hands more. She starting painting so passionately in the past 5 years, that she has decided to dedicate her future to full-time art creation.
Tiffany has shown paintings at a handful of galleries in the LA area, and most recently started showing in local juried art fairs this year, 2013.
