“I was only using paint when I started but it felt so flat and not reflective of who I am. Something was missing. Then one day I said to myself, ‘You know what? Let go of rules. Let go of what you think art should be and just do what you want to do. So I basically returned to that little girl in her room as a child who used to think, ‘Oh, this is an interesting material. I could put it here and put that there.’ I started thinking about being resourceful again and not always thinking I need the best canvas or best paint, to focus on what’s inside of me. It was the playfulness that I took from my father. I remembered his encouragement to be bold and to just try things.” - Tiffanie Delune interviewed by Enuma Okoro.
