Emerging artist and Chicago native, Tiffany Baker uses her art to turn life experiences into emotive pieces of visual expression that celebrate her identity as a person of color, re-imagine trauma and embed messages of connection. It was the tragic death of her sister in 2007 that initiated her desire to show the beauty in loss.
Working in a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, and pencil, Tiffany has developed a unique style of portraiture by merging the somber with the regal, bringing forth an intensity in the subjects she creates.
Tiffany trained at SVA, The New York Academy of Art and Pratt Institute, where she obtained her Bachelor’s of Industrial Design. She has exhibited her work in three self-produced shows, “Smilehood and Other Stories”, “Heritage” and “Light Beings” since 2016.
She has spent the last six years making colorful editorial illustrations as a Senior Designer for CNN and maintains a full-time practice from her studio in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
