Tiffany Rose is a left handed illustrator and author. She is currently living and working in Paris, France. She’s a lover of coffee, massive curly afros, world travel, and little brown children being their quirky free selves.
She is a full time teacher, creator, and world traveler.
Rose saw a need for children of color, to be represented in children’s literature and illustration. She remembers what it was like as a brown child not seeing herself represented in the books and characters she loved so dearly.
Rose recently illustrated a 12 month calendar titled In My Melanin, which features the joy and beauty of black children. Her Imaginarium 2019 calendar will be out December 2018.
Rose creates art so that the 14.2% of underrepresented children can see themselves reflected.
Pencil in hand, she’s changing that percentage one illustration at a time.
Rose’s debut picture book ‘M is for Melanin’ will be published in Fall 2019.
