Featured Artist ~ Tiffany Teske




You will be fascinated with a visit to TiffanyTeske, an Etsy shop filled with this gifted photographer’s work in Polaroid processes, prints, cards, and pendants.

Tiffany explains that her passion for photography began at the age of 7, when she was given a 110 camera, to capture memories on a family trip. Formal photography study, however, wasn’t Tiffany’s original plan. Studying ballet, creative writing, and art in high school, she did not take any photography classes, but rather was "the after school photography club,” learning how to use the darkroom from a science teacher.

Tiffany explains that “the chemicals got into my blood, and after roaming the US for 5 years (Arizona, Florida, Connecticut, & New York) I settled in Carrabassett Valley, Maine, population 200, and home to Sugarloaf USA, and decided to go to University for.... nursing? Well, yes, I did start the pre req courses, but fate stepped in, and after one summer colour printing course and some credit mishaps on the school's part, I switched my major to photography.”

Graduating from the University of Maine at Augusta with an Associate of Arts in Photography (Magna cum Laude) in 2000, Tiffany received her Bachelor of Arts Joint BA in Art and Photography (Magna cum Laude) in 2002.

I especially enjoy Tiffany’s Polaroid process works as this is a photography art form I have seen my brother-in-law use. It is incredible to see the works develop as the photographer “works” with the film.
