Instructor Biography

Tatiana Ambrose, Creative Artist & Online Instructor

My name is Tatiana Ambrose, and my world revolves around creativity and creative thought. I have a BFA degree in Creative Writing and find myself drawn to the questions most creative enthusiasts are drawn to: how to generate new ideas, and how to stand out from the crowd as I do it.

For ten years, I have contemplated these two questions, almost exclusively, during my creative work (academic work as well as personal). My creativity expresses itself through still life drawing with various art media, paper art, painting, acrylic, rock art, ceramics, sewing, jewelry, pastels and multimedia work. Abstract art has always been my favorite; it is through that medium that my creativity can really soar.

In 2009, during my college years, I began a YouTube channel focusing on upcycling pop tabs and creating tutorials encouraging others to follow along. These videos are still some of the most popular videos on my channel with almost 5 million total views. 

My channel has evolved from crafts to now focus more on me, creativity and my lifestyle, with the occasional videos of my three dogs, Ares, Athena and Romeo. I have grown up with dogs and been working professionally with dogs since I was a teenager. From all natural dog food stores to dog grooming, dog training and even dedicated three years at a veterinary clinic. My passion for dogs is a close second to my passion for creativity.

Yet just as my channel has evolved, so has my thinking about creativity. I now see it as a way to give life to anything I encounter as struggling to be beautiful, exciting, or different from the crowd. Creativity has a use in our everyday lives, if we just relax and allow our thoughts to escape the box we try to force them into.

Your journey of creativity is individual to you, and I hope I get to know you through that journey, regardless of where it takes you or how you choose to use it.
