Fibre artist and illustrator Lisa Davis has created a line of colouring books, dolls and other products for girls of colour under her company The Craft People. She tells JIS News: “Representation matters, and in Jamaica, we have a lot of imported books and they’re not necessarily geared towards our people, especially girls of colour. So when I was looking around and trying to buy one for my daughter, I was not seeing her face on anything. It’s all blonde hair, blue eyes and light skin, so I decided that I would create something.”
Her book Colour Me Sweet was released in 2018 and is available at Fontana Pharmacy, Bookophilia, UWI Bookshop, Art Connect Ja and the Holiday Inn in Montego Bay. Her next projects include promoting her Fresh, Fly and Funky blouses and completing a colouring book for boys. See her complete product range on her Instagram: @thecraftppl.
