Philadelphia-based artist American Queen TJD aka TIFF Davis is best known for her vibrant abstract paintings highlighting a set of words painted on top of crowns that sit above a human bust-like object.TIFF introduces a complex vision of what it means to treat your thoughts like you would a gold crown. She believes that we all must remember to fix or adjust our own crown from time to time. Her mission is to spread positive energy, hope, and motivation through art. 

By creating these paintings she is sending a message about how important it is for every individual to nurture themselves by holding their own thoughts or dreams up on pedestals. Her work also stems from her own experiences and the world around her. Her most recent artwork takes a critical view of social, cultural and interpersonal issues. Some of her artistic inspirations are Basquiat, Pollock, Haring, Warhol, Picasso, RGB, Nina Simone, I miss the old Kanye, and Lauryn Hill.
