She is know for her Vibrant colors

Artist Synthia Saint James was a recent guest at California State University, San Bernardino, speaking to a largely student/faculty audience about getting their work in the public domain. She is known for the vibrant colors used and the featureless

faces depicted. She uses geometric shapes to create a strong communal sense, making features unnecessary. Her work can be found in many media forms, including book covers (“Waiting To Exhale”); children’s book illustrations; a mural in the Ontario airport; a totem pole in the courtyard of a home for displaced women in downtown Los Angeles; coffee mugs; hats and tote bags for a major book store. Saint James created the first Kwanzaa stamp for the U.S. Postal Service in 1997.

I love bold colors and I also love the way Synthia did what ever it took to live her dream.

I have always been a dreamer. I dream big and live large. There is always days when the dream is all yo have but the actions keep you going moving towards your goals and living the dream.
