I am BLUE SOUL ARTIST aka Tiffany C. Woolard, the owner and operator of Blue Soul Artist Creative Services LLC. I'm obsessed with what I do!...and with that here goes a little something about me.
Photography , fashion, design, art and education pretty much sums me up. I believe that being creative equals freedom. Queens, NYC is where I'm from, ATL is where I work. I do what I feel when I feel it, there's no holding back! I've always held a passion for the arts. I knew that one day my passion would blossom into a career. I grew up watching my father, Raymond A. Woolard Sr. who is a designer and photographer. I would always ask myself, will I ever be as good as him? If you were to ask him, he'd tell you that I'm better than him now. Following both of my parent's influence and love for the arts has truly made me a better person and honestly saved my life.
In 2004, I was stricken with a debilitating rare bone disease called Kienbock's disease, also known as avascular necrosis of the lunate, is a condition in which the lunate bone, one of eight small bones in the wrist, loses its blood supply, leading to death of the bone. The lunate is a central bone in the wrist that is important for proper movement and support of the joint. This was a very difficult time in my life. My dominate hand, my right was no longer the same. Normality was no longer for me. I couldn’t write, draw or even hold my camera. I found a way to bring myself back to what I felt was functioning. Exactly 10 years later the disease found its way back Into my world. In 2014, I developed the disease in my left wrist. This time I knew what I had to do in order to feel like the same old creative me again. There are times where pain and stiffness creep their way into my hands, fingers and wrists, but I remain determined and motivated to continue creating.
When I take a picture, it becomes more than just an image, it is a design. When I paint a picture, I close my eyes real tight and flow with every brush stroke. Everything that I create represents a part of me, my personality, pain and triumph. I enjoy seeing the way people view my work and ask me, where did my concepts come from? I always tell them, that my concepts are just my pain, triumphs and experiences all wrapped up in to one big feeling with a touch of exploration and creativity.
I am an alumnus from The Art Institute of Atlanta, being the first to ever graduate with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in Photographic Imaging in 2001. I received my Masters in Art Education in 2011 from Adelphi University in Garden City, NY.
My work has appeared on VH1 music channel as well as in publications such as Black Enterprise and Atlanta Tribune the Magazine. I currently teach High School Visual Arts at an awesome school in Georgia. In 2008 I branded and developed a new line of funk organic jewelry, Blue Dragonfly Soul which has sold in a few boutiques and can now be purchased at The
When I'm not educating, you can find me conducting paint parties, giving private lessons, creating custom art or photographing something wonderful. What some would consider down time, is actually known as work time for me. I've been in business since 1998 and I don't plan on stopping any time soon!
