How Amy Sherald Gets It Done

by The Cut on Tuesdays

In this installment of our "How I Get It Done" series, Stella Bugbee talks with artist Amy Sherald. 

When she was selected to paint First Lady Michelle Obama's official portrait last fall, Amy Sherald's entire life changed virtually overnight. Amy tells us about how she's managing her newfound fame, how she negotiates her busy schedule with a chronic health condition, her desire for motherhood, and much more.
