Carrie Hawks harnesses the magic of animation to tell stories. The artist has been seriously committed to visual art ever since holding a crayon. They have exhibited art in New York, Atlanta, Kansas City, Toronto, and Tokyo. Their first film, Delilah, won the Best Experimental Award at the Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival (2012). Their films have screened at BlackStar Film Festival (Philadelphia), CinemAfrica (Stockholm, Sweden), and MIX Queer Experimental Film Festival (New York). The Jerome Foundation gave generous funding to black enuf*
