Tiffany Lange is an artist, designer, and illustrator. From puppetry to children’s book illustration, the intent of her art is to pause the commotion of everyday life and guide the audience toward a lighthearted sensory experience. She employs the use of imagery that is introspective and whimsical—generating curiosity with rich hues, dynamic characters, and intriguing exaggerations of dimension.
Tiffany is Creative Director at Charm City Puppets and the marketing agency Giant Sprout Creative, LLC. She creates custom puppets for a range of national clientele with Charm City Puppets and Chicago-based VonOrthal Puppets, and has worked as a puppet designer and teacher since 2002. In 2013, she moved from Chicago to Baltimore, and is excited to be bringing more puppetry to Charm City through group classes and private instruction. Tiffany has collaboratively designed several successful puppet-based shows, including Berwyn Avenue performed at the Raven Theatre and Don Quixote for The Joffrey Ballet in Chicago.
Tiffany earned her MS degree in biomedical visualization (medical illustration) from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Prior to this she attained a BFA with a biological sciences minor from Clemson University in South Carolina, and completed a concentration in fine art at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.
