What you will find here at my creative academy is intuitive messy art that anyone can do. I will warn you I have been told I can say some pretty funny things so only enter if you can stand a good laugh.

I believe that life is stressful enough and art shouldn't be.

What students are saying:

"Watching Tiff create is such a treat. Ive followed her Youtube Channel which I adore, but having her in depth instruction was a game changer for me. I learned so many new techniques. Not rigid, technical knowledge. The free-flowing, magic spark of creativity that I can constantly build on. The class felt a lot like hanging out with a good friend. Her ideas and execution to create. I highly recommend her as a teacher, and I would definitely recommend the class for any level of artist." - Tamara Tomko


"Each time I have taken a course with Tiffany, on-line or in person, I’ve walked away feeling more confident about my own abilities, feeling challenged to now practice new skills I’ve just learned, inspired, and laughing because I’ve had so much fun. You’ll never go wrong taking one of Southern Gal’s classes plus you can’t beat the price." - Peg Mock

Hello and Thank you for being here!

I'm Tiffany Goff Smith the southern accent behind the art. I am a self taught mixed media artist that enjoys mess making and a good belly laugh. I believe that everyone is creative and somewhere along the road to being an adult we disconnected from the freedom of play. I am on a mission to spark that creative voice inside each and everyone of you. 


I hope you grab yourself a nice glass of sweet tea and enjoy the classes I have made to create that spark.
