"Amy, you've had quite a year," said Dorothy Kosinski, eliciting a wave of laughter from the audience.

For Amy Sherald, who recently unveiled her portrait of Michelle Obama at the National Portrait Gallery, it has been quite a year indeed.

On March 29, Sherald visited the University of Maryland campus as part of The Phillips Collection's "Conversations with Artists" series. Seated in the David C. Driskell Center Gallery, Sherald spoke with Dorothy Kosinski, director of The Phillips Collection, about her artistic style and the years-long journey she took to find it.
