About the Artist
Tina Hoggatt (Issaquah) received a 2004 GAP to cover travel, living, documentation and printing costs for the collaborative illustration on My Jim, a novel by fellow Artist Trust grant recipient Nancy Rawles. “The story is one of a modern family living during and after the Slave trade in America, and is told while the narrator sews a quilt with her granddaughter.” With assistance from accomplished quilt maker Nancy Gibson, a woman in her 90s working within the African American tradition, Hoggatt’s book illustrations were created in black and white for the book itself and later printed on vintage fabric to be incorporated into a finished quilt. Cover and some interior illustrations were taken from the finished sewn work.
In 2013 Hoggatt was featured in CityArts magazine.
