Amy Sherald Painted A Portrait Of Michelle Obama And Life Changed In A Big Way

A self-professed late bloomerAmy Sherald’s life completely changed when she was chosen to paint Michelle Obama’s portrait. She became the first black woman to paint an official portrait of the First Lady — an extremely popularpainting that took her from working as a relatively unknown artist, making ends meet however she could, to being famous and in high demand. She’s now exclusively represented by Hauser & Wirth, and her first solo show with the gallery will open in New York City in September.
