Synopsis

Faith Ringgold was born in Harlem, but now divides her time between New Jersey and La Jolla, California.  She is a professor of fine art at the University of California at San Diego, where she teaches for half of the year. An artist of international renown, Faith is best known for her story quilts -- works that combine painting, quilted fabric, and storytelling. Faiths first book for children, Tar Beach, was a Caldecott Honor Book, a winner of the Coretta Scott King Award for illustration, a Reading Rainbow featured selection, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book, and the recipient of numerous other honors, including a Parents Choice Gold Award. Faith is married to Burdette Ringgold and has two daughters, Michele and Barbara, and three granddaughters, Faith, Teddy and Martha.
