What sets your business apart from your competition?
What sets Artzy Love apart from our competitors is that we specialize in taking artwork and turning it into masterpieces. We don't just print and ship. We take our time and design the right piece for our clients using their artwork.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
As a mother, I have spent countless hours trying to organize the drawings and projects my child colors and paints. It's difficult to part with them, but they clutter up. Like every other parent in the world, I tried the countless organization tips found on Pinterest. Turns out you still end up with a montage of paper everywhere. I wanted a streamlined piece of artwork that contained multiple pieces so I could have just that one large piece to admire. It was then that Artzy Love was born.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
I had a grandmother call me up after seeing what I designed for her daughter's four girls. She wanted exact duplicates.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
I have been a graphic designer and illustrator for nearly 20 years. I have worked in various corporations and even the military sector, but designing masterpieces out of children's artwork is my favorite. I feel that instilling a love of art and showcasing a child's work can lead them down a path of confidence and self assurance that can carry them throughout their life with a positive approach.

Along with paid work, Tiffanie lends her talents to numerous charitable causes, such as taking free photographs of high-school seniors in foster care.

Once her family and friends caught a glimpse, however, they were beating down her door to take their photos as well. She specializes in on-location work, whether it’s for high-school seniors, families, engagements, newborn babies, or children.
