Concrete Art by Tiffany Klein
So how long does it take to complete a work of art? "Depends on what I am doing, usually I spend a good week on any piece... I change things a lot and I rework things I don't like. So being fussy by nature, I allow myself time to do so."
Tiffany's Painted Ladies are currently being displayed and sold at DeRubies Gallery in Key West, Florida.

The type of art Tiffany focuses on is Multi-media relief sculptures, that actually is carved concrete stone, in many forms. Tiffany carves what she is thinking then she embellishes with recycled stones, crystals and glass, until she is happy with it. Each piece has a story and each piece is original to its design. She can do custom pieces i.e. a daughter in her wedding gown, a new baby, women from generations, golfing series, jazz pieces, etc… any subject that she can make out an image, she can carve it.
Tiffany's latest project involved creating an art piece to be submitted to Art Prize, an art competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Tiffany was unsure of what she was going to make until she saw some Civil War paintings, immediately she thought of ”Gone With the Wind”. Still unsure of how she was going to accomplish that, she decided to “wing it” and just do whatever she was thinking at the time, she found a few images of Clark Gable as Rhett Butler and Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara and she went from there. Tiffany has several videos to show the progress made by David Such and his team from Such Video (old town, Lansing)
