A Storyteller and Artist
Tiffanee Daley is an Australian author-illustrator based in Canberra and mother of two. Primarily self-taught, she started drawing as a child and found inspiration in all things fantasy as well as science fiction, horror and the supernatural. Having a keen sense of adventure, she also finds inspiration in activities such as rock climbing and archery.
With aspirations to work in the gaming industry, Tiffanee began a game art and animation diploma in her twenties but was unable to finish due to a motorcycle accident. With the drastic change in circumstances, she resigned from her place of employment to focus on injury rehabilitation and became reacquainted with her passion for drawing and storytelling.
Her first publication as an illustrator is a picture book titled Combat Wombat to the Rescue and was published in October 2020. Combat Wombat is Written by local Canberra author Dr Gina M Newton and has a focus on bushfires.
Tiffanee is a member of several Australian writers groups including the Australian Society of Authors (ASA), the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) and the ACT Writers Centre. Currently she is working on her first fantasy novel, picture books and personal portfolio of artworks.
