Mother of two girls, Francia McCormack is an educator, writer and artist. She is a Jamaican native currently residing in Atlanta, Georgia. For fun, she's on the hiking trails or in the gardens with her girls. Or if she's not making something or teaching someone to make something, you can find her at the closest museum or tea shop. She completed her undergraduate work in journalism at the University of Georgia and received her Masters in Education from the University at Buffalo. As a resident in Harlem, New York, she has worked for the Harlem Children's Zone as an art educator. Her daily inspiration comes from watching her children grow like dandelions. Her Jamaican roots and her two favorite cities, Atlanta and New York City, keep her creative. Favorite way of summing up life - blessed.
