artist of the month at Studios of Cocoa Beach

The Studios of Cocoa Beach introduces its January Artist of the Month, Tiffany Allen. Tiffany draws realistic images of animals, birds, fish and nature using graphite and charcoal pencil.

“I enjoy the control and precision of drawing with pencil," Ms. Allen said. "The monochrome palette highlights the patterns and textures in the subjects I draw.” For each piece, she begins by lightly sketching the “bones” of the piece on heavy weight 100% cotton Bristol vellum.
