Tiffany Osedra Miller's Profile

About

Born in Manhattan and raised in the Bronx, I am the daughter of Caribbean immigrants from Jamaica and Antigua. The bright colors I use in my art and many of the themes I explore as a writer, invoke a Caribbean Carnival aesthetic, which is as deeply spiritual as much as it is subversive, naughty and playful. In addition, though I am primarily a self-taught artist, my influences include early to mid-20th century literature and art which featured the art of the Harlem Renaissance, the German Expressionists, the Symbolists, and the Surrealists.

I specialize in creating small format, original, one of a kind, acrylic paintings and illustrations on cotton rag paper, latex paper, watercolor paper and canvas. I also draw in pen, pencil and ink. Some of my work includes hand painted, poetic and narrative comics and cartoons such as my ongoing Caribbean Dream Carnival series, "Goatwater"…

Some of my work includes hand painted, poetic and narrative comics and cartoons such as my ongoing Caribbean Dream Carnival series, "Goatwater" that I began in 2011. I currently offer a few original paintings from "Goatwater" for sale at this store.

To create my work, I often use very small brushes while supporting the painting or drawing in my lap as though I am writing. Unless otherwise indicated, all materials are high quality, acid-free and archival.
