Tiffany Marcum

Artist Biography 

My name is Tiffany Marcum, and I was born in the Appalachian Mountains. I am a self-taught artist and contributing writer on art, comedy, language, and mental health topics.

I studied Social Sciences, while also taking creative writing and art courses such as “Art for Education”, “Art Appreciation”, and “Art History”.  

I expanded my practice creating wax panels, timed drawing and shading exercises, mosaics, hand mixing colors, pop art comic panels, art for the classroom, and collage. I love to incorporate symbolism and social issues into my artwork.  

In 2006, I won the Billie and Curtis Owens Award in Fiction. In 2010, I won the Friends of Weaverville Library Essay Contest. 

In 2013 I took part in an employee art gallery, where I showed 2 original paintings. 

In 2019 I was invited to a viewing at the Cynthia Corbett Gallery in Miami, Florida.

Tales From Sabbatical- A Postcard From Behavioral Healthcare

My Career Memoir is COMING SOON! This is a bit of a teaser for my cover. And yes, that’s me!

“…Tales From Sabbatical will leave you with a heightened awareness of the somewhat fragile human condition, the silent killer of compassion fatigue, and hope to rebuild from tragedy, along with resources for help…”

Never trust a bad smell or scream.

Sociology homework before my first writing contest win. Everyone needs this level of encouragement! I’m on it, Dr. Denham!
