My name is Tiffini Scherbing. I have been drawing, painting and creating from a very young age. I am a surgical technician by day and an artist the rest of the time. I fell into illustrating books a couple of years ago when an old high school classmate wrote a book and remembered that I was artistic. Its been a whirlwind every since. I love to draw anything, its that simple. I love all mediums and honestly don't really have my own style. I am a published illustrator with Spencer Hill Press and am currently working on the "Between" trilogy. The first Between YA novel's endpapers (illustrated by myself) were voted one of 18 most beautiful in the world by Epic Reads, a digital community started by Harper Collins Publishing. My painting, The Biltmore, is on permanent display at the University of Kentucky. This all may sound impressive but honestly, I just love to draw, paint and create. No job is too small or too big. I love to draw anything. Hope to hear from you!!! Thank you!
