When she picks up her brushes and a glass of wine, Tiffany Michelle Bora transforms into The Tipsy Artist. After discovering a love for art at the age of 4,
she followed that passion through studio art studies at Texas Tech University and into a role as an art gallery director. Though she's experimented with metal sculpture, photography, and interior design, one of her most enduring media is paint. Today, she passes her knowledge and technique on to others through playful painting parties.
These events blend low-pressure instruction with a palette of bright colors and at least a few glasses of red and white. To guide students through her process, Tiffany relies on examples of her own upbeat works and an occasional guest lecture from Vincent Van Gogh. The result is an experience praised in local media such as Oklahoma Live, Oklahoma Gazette, and the City Sentinel for its ability to put painters of all experience levels at ease. The Tipsy Artist has drawn others into her artistic world with parties at several upscale wine bars and restaurants. Whether she's coordinating a public party or a private event, Tiffany sees what she does as blending culinary and visual art: she often arranges platters of food to help soak up all the wine.
