Tiffanie Irizarry

The Fort Peck Reservation will always be home for Tiffanie Irizarry, the land of her ancestors; she is Ihanktowan Dakota and Puerto Rican. Inspired from her heritage as an Indigenous woman, she draws, paints and sculpts portraits of members of her tribe. Irizarry is currently attending the Institute of American Indian Arts, pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Arts and she practices her craft in Albuquerque, NM. A notable publication of Irizarry’s work has been through the Tribal College Journal where her drawing was chosen for the front cover of the Summer 2021 issue. Through private commissions, Irizarry’s work has been able to expand beyond the reservation, drawing especially loved ones for clients. She has also enjoyed helping assemble and participate in art auction exhibits in her hometown. Irizarry intends on continuing to provide opportunities for her tribe and promote inclusion and entrepreneurship for youth through art.
