With a unique eye for design, Ravin regularly creates personal and commissioned “storyteller quilts” filled with vibrant colors and bold shapes. Ravin has been quilting professionally since 2000 after circumstances forced her to revisit a quilt that she and Big Mama (Lueberta Hawkins, her Grandmother) began in 1994 but were unable to complete. Ravin soon discovered her artistic abilities and graduated Cum Laude with a B. A. in English and Art Education from Tougaloo College in May of 2004. She later pursued and received her Master’s degree in Art Education with an emphasis in Art Therapy from Florida State University in 2006. Later, in 2022, she completed her Master of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies from Belhaven University.
As an Artist and Art Therapist, Ravin aspires to share her skills, knowledge, and gift of quilt-making with others. Art Therapy is a human-helping profession that services all populations with mental, physical, emotional, and psychological health issues. It is her goal to share her experiences through quilt-making to help those who are in need achieve holistic health. In doing so, she will honor the tradition that her grandmother has left with her.
