Hollins, Tulsa, and Highlights!

The second half of 2018 was full of wonderful happenings. I spent time mentoring great talents at The Highlights Foundation this summer, I presented my work at Hollins University, I participated in an amazing show titlted “Telling a People’s Story: African American Children’s Illustrated Literature” at the Miami University at Oxford, and spent time sharing Please, Louise with the Tulsa Public Library!

So honored by the librarians at the Tulsa Public Library!

It was a great year! To end things on an amazing note, The Highlights Foundation has also named a Visual Arts scholarship in my name and an artist-in-residency scholarship after Nikki Grimes. More on that tomorrow! Stay tuned!!
