Tiffany is a VISUAL artist, WORDSMITH, and DREAMER.
Through drawing, writing, and performance, her work investigates the nebulous distinction between want, need, and desire in context of political and capitalist spectacles. She maintains an intimate sketchbook process that serves as a sociological platform, documenting encounters that situate the artist as observer, participant, and researcher. By manipulating vernacular language and signifiers of chance, she reveals how manifestations of want are informed by the nation state, free markets, and imperialist legacies.
Tiffany currently lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area where she serves as a faculty member at the Community School of Music and Arts in Mountain View, CA where she specializes in courses on drawing, illustration, and printmaking. She has worked as a freelance illustrator and studio assistant at Printfresh, Deb Chaney Editions, and Parsons the New School for Design’s Printmaking department. She holds a MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Illustration Practice and a BA in Gender & Women's Studies and Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to her artistic career, she served as a reproductive health counselor at a community health clinic in Oakland, CA.
Recent collaborative partners include the Children's Discovery Museum of San José, Executives' Alliance for Boys and Men of Color, Museum of Impact, Litografiska Akademin Tidaholm, and the Uni Project.
Tiffany is obsessed with people watching, noodle soup, biking, and not getting run over.
