In her art, Tiffany Lawson imagines a bright future

By day a deputy bailiff, this artist has made a name for herself sharing her hopes and views via her mixed-media works. 

Tiffany Lawson, a Black woman wearing a hat, round glasses and a friendly smile, leans on her work table. In front of her are all kinds of supplies and works in progress and on the wall behind her are paintings she created on paper bags. They include people, faces and scenes in unexpected colors.
