Tiffaney Bishop began her working life in the marketing field, with 15 years experience in event management and public relations, with roles in hospitality, corporate and community marketing. It wasn’t until she had children that she fulfilled her more artistic desires by enrolling in art school. Tiffaney completed her second degree at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, but this time in Fine Art Photography and has just completed her honors degree. Tiffaney enjoys research and plans to continue studying. She also plans to exhibit regularly. Tiffaney supports her artistic endeavors by working, part-time, in arts administration. The work you see today is part of a bigger body of work that will be exhibited in 2007 at 45 Downstairs, Flinders Lane and The Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne, as well as Yering Station in the Yarra Valley. Recently Tiffaney was invited to participate in Beaconhills College’s Artist in Residence Program. Tiffaney was selected for her expertise in digital fine art photography and ran a term long program for Year 10 and 11 Students at the Pakenham campus. The Program was a huge success and Tiffaney was asked to extend her role to include mentoring the Year 12 VCE Visual Arts Students. The experience was incredibly empowering for both student and artist alike and many inspiring and rewarding outcomes evolved during the term. Also recently, Tiffaney was selected to be a part of International Women’s’ Development Agencies international photography exhibition called Women’s Eye on Peace II. The exhibition will be launched In Melbourne and tour to Sydney where Sotheby’s will also host an exhibition. Images are for sale and all proceeds go towards furthering women’s peace initiatives around the world. The exhibition is also supported by Marie Claire Magazine and is being held to promote United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, which focuses on woman and children and their involvement in war, peace and security. (Resolution 1325 is the inspiration behind Tiffaney’s work). The Melbourne exhibition will be opening on the anniversary date of the declaration of Resolution 1325, 31st October 2006. Tiffaney has also been selected to be a part of the Fred Hollows Foundation photography exhibition Do you see what I see? All things ordinary look extraordinary, to be launched in November of this year. Tiffaney is also participating in a Melbourne City Council Grant awarded project. Tiffaney is print consultant and project assistant on a project that will launch an exhibition and documentary about an 82 year old female photographer who until now has been largely unrecognised for her iconic photography of much of Melbourne’s history from the 50’s through to the 90’s.
