artist spotlight: synthia saint james

You may remember the vibrant artwork decorating the walls of the Huxtables' living room of The Cosby Show, but do you know the artist behind it? Her name is Synthia Saint James and she's known for her amazing graphic paintings in bright acrylics. She is also the first African American artist to design a US Postal Stamp!
