About The Artist

Tiffany Hastie on locationBorn and raised on the west coast of British Columbia, I have always held a deep appreciation for the natural beauty surrounding me. The permanence of landscape and architecture, when combined with the ever-changing light, provides an endless source of inspiration and challenge. The tension created when painting the “Grand View” in miniature offers a type of intimacy that draws the viewer inward. It is this alluring quality inherent in miniature painting that I find fascinating to work with.

It takes me approximately 15 hours to complete a single image, using acrylic paint on paper board, with several tiny brushes and a generous amount of patience and concentration. I often hold my breath while applying the tiniest of details and frequently have to remind myself to get up and move! It is my pleasure to both paint and teach the fine art of painting in miniature.

In addition to miniature work I have authored two painting books (Endless Seasons Vol. I & II), and work with a variety of mixed media, drawing and design.
