Corita Kent, an artist, nun, and educator, is being celebrated on Google's homepage today with a doodle on her birthday. She was born on November 20,1918, and passed away in 1986.

Also known as Sister Mary Corita Kent and born Frances Elizabeth, Kent worked with silkscreen or serigraphy, and is credited with helping to establish it as a fine art medium. Her work was popular during the social upheavals of the 60s and 70s.

Kent also designed the USPS annual "love" stamp in 1985.

Today would have been Kent's 96th birthday.
