The bold and dramatic nature of Tiffany Blaise’s work is translated through the artist’s fascination with capturing emotionally charged landscapes on canvas. In her artistic practice, the Vancouver-based painter explores the themes of movement, introspection and transformation through reinterpreting subjects such as dramatic coastlines and swirling skies.

Blaise’s paintings unite the physical landscape with the world of the mind. “My art practice is a journey rooted in the exploration of thoughts and nature. I want to portray the connection between our inner nature and the landscape that surrounds us.”

She sources imagery of dramatic landscapes and seascapes while adventuring around British Columbia and abroad.
