Daily Dose Pick: Tiffany Bozic

San Francisco-based artist Tiffany Bozic is a self-taught talent whose work is inspired by the overflow of life’s complex tangles and informed by her extensive travel to wild places. Drawing from her background in Natural Science (specifically, her study of research specimens at the California Academy of Sciences), her Gothic spin on Audubon-style naturalism communicates through elaborate metaphors.

Her current exhibition’s title, Confiding to Strangers, gets at the deeply personal nature of her allegories. “Each painting is about the intimate struggles we share with other living creatures,” she explains. “I use examples from nature to help me describe these increasingly complex emotions, expanding my own metaphorical language. These works are small reminders that we are nature; connected to everything.”
