Tiffany is an interdisciplinary artist, illustrator, and chronic doodler. 

She documents everyday happenings through an intimate sketchbook process that translates into conceptual and narrative based work focused on labor, place, and belonging as it pertains to American identity.  Her work seeks to reframe the mythology of the American Dream as a constant state of want through the lens of chance and circumstance.  She works primarily with pen, paper, and words.

Tiffany 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 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 Alameda County Public Health, Interrupt Magazine, the National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance, Litografiska Akademin - Tidaholm, Thrillist, and the Uni Project.

Tiffany is obsessed with noodle soup, biking, and not gettΒ­ing run over.
