Since 2003, Tiffany Besonen has exhibited
her two and three-dimensional work through-
out the U.S., at the artist cooperative SOHO20
Gallery in New York City, as well as exhibiting in
two traveling group shows at college galleries in
20 states. Her work is in private collections and in
the permanent collection of Finlandia University.
She is the recipient of the Minnesota State Arts
Board Individual Artist Grant and the Minneapolis
College of Art & Design summer residency for art
teachers. She writes about the creative process
and art education for the Art Educators
of Minnesota and her artist blog. Since 1993,
Tiffany has taught elementary through high
school visual arts in Minnesota public schools,
and credits mothering and teaching experiences
for inspiring her art and writing the most.
In her words:
As an artist, I work intuitively with materials, colors,
images, and forms. Creating personal metaphors is a
process of soothing my own anxieties and discovering
how everything is connected.
I grew up on a sheep farm in North-Central Minnesota,
left rural life for ten years and returned in 1998 when
my boyfriend (now husband) proposed and then
shocked me by wanting to live in rural Minnesota, so
remote yet in the center of everything I truly need.
