Tiff has always been attracted to controlled chaos. She’s lived across the U.S. and has traveled all over the world. When Tiff was young, she prided herself in the fact that she could fit everything she owned into one bag, maybe a few bags, (and that is when her bag obsession started)
Born on the West Coast in California, Tiff’s favorite place she has lived (and claims as her true home), is New Orleans. There she sold the Art of Dr. Suess and painted murals for the gallery space at the Angela King Gallery. New Orleans is where Tiff truly discovered her passion for people and art.
Tiff is primarily a self-taught artist, though she traveled all over the U.S to join workshops of artists she admires, such as Mike Carson, Martin Campos, and Chris Guest. These three artists had a large influence on her and she started her art career as a figurative artist. Chaotic charcoal and pastel drawings were how Tiff got her start. The way Tiff approaches her charcoal drawings, is the same way she works on her bags, Only the surface and medium changed. Her process is still very much the same.
Tiff’s husband is a Naval Officer. Being in the Navy requires a lot of travel and many of Tiff’s bags are inspired by places and experiences her and her husband have shared together. It was the Navy that brought them to Newport RI. Like everywhere else Tiff has lived, she immediately immersed herself into the Newport culture and feels right at home here.
