Synthia Saint James' canvases are all about large expanses of blazing color, whether her subject is family, community, black pride, or African tradition. An author and songwriter as well as a fine artist of note and a sought-after illustrator, Saint James recently completed a public mural executed in ceramic tile and glass. She supplements frequent public commissions with philanthropical endeavors, such as painting a mural in the obstetrics ward of a Los Angeles hospital and donating her work to an African American scholarship fund. Saint James is currently at work on an autobiography.
