Name:Tiffany a.k.a. Artiffact Astrological Sign: Sagittarius Hometown:Born and raised in the East Bay Area Location:San Leandro, CA Short Bio:
Tiffany Chenoweth, a.k.a. Artiffact, was born and raised in the Bay Area. She graduated from SF State with a degree in child and adolescent development and has worked with youth in many arenas, including girls empowerment. She currently does a 9-5 as a nutrition education cooking teacher in public schools. Aside from cooking as her creative outlet, Tiffany sews and screenprints. Her inspiration has always come from the streets and from the trash, as all of her one-of-a-kind designs are remade, refashioned, and remixed from textiles dug up from the past. She founded Homeygrown, a creative network, back in 2004 as a way to build community and support other artists. If she’s not organizing the next clothing swap, you can find her hunting in thrift stores, rummaging garage sales, and street vending her creations on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley in the summer. But of all her creations, Tiffany is most proud of her daughter, an 8-year-old dancing queen who also has caught the fashion bug!
