Tiff Goff Smith

I'm Tiffany Goff Smith and the Gal behind Southern Gals Designs. I live on the gulf coast of Alabama with my husband, fur/ feathered children. I am a creative alchemist who enjoys bookmaking, my most favorite books are made from the discarded unusual treasures. Taking what most would say is junk and throwing it out. I give it new life and it brings me refuge from the storms of the world.

Andrea Chebeleu

Andrea Chebeleu is the artist and entrepreneur behind A Work of Heart Studio.  A creative innovator from a very young age, Andrea enjoys a challenge and most of all figuring out how to make art with what’s on hand.  As an art instructor, her greatest joy comes from leading students through a process that, on the surface, looks complex but is achieved in simple steps.  Andrea's students appreciate her knowledge of materials, techniques and "try it and see what happens" attitude.  Creativity comes intrying and retrying.  Andrea takes the fear of trying in her approach of "first, not only."  While it may be the first time you’ve tried this, it’s not your only time.  Students are empowered to freely approach learning with playful curioisty.
