Illustrator, Voice of Freedom: Fannie Lou Hamer

Ekua Holmes is a painter and collage artist who uses news clippings, photographs, vibrant color, and skillful composition to infuse her work with energy. Her layered, abstract creations convey a sense of unity and evoke memories that are both personal and universal. In her collages, she revisits the joy and challenges of childhood through adult eyes. These works reexamine the foundational relationships, games, and rule that we learn at an early age and apply throughout our lives. Holmes illustrated _Voice of Freedom: Fannie Lou Hamer_ (2015), written by Carole Boston Weatherford.
