Hello. I’m Tiffany Julia. I’m an artist living in New York City with an absolute passion for documenting my everyday life. I love to write, compose music, scrapbook and create art. I’m a creative of all kinds really, who also enjoys traveling the world and learning about different cultures, all while I eat tons of delicious food. I love documenting my various journeys around the world in thick handmade travel journals, and while I’m not out traversing the globe, I enjoy documenting the everyday in my scrapbooks and experimenting with mixed media in my art journals.
I have an unrestrained passion for many things and I often find myself longing for something greater than life. I hope to share my creativity and inspire you to create beautiful imagery and document your own life in a meaningful way.
