The Art of Gifting
Curly Contessa blurs the line between fine art and gifting through enchanting watercolors. Curly Contessa serves to celebrate and embrace African-American women natural textured hair through riveting illustrations. Curly Contessa ,”matriarch of curly tresses,” highlights the diverse beauty of African-American kinky coils/hair.
Often drawing on the walls as a toddler, my flair for art and design developed at an early age. My passion is creating captivating visuals and authentic experiences. Shopping for the perfect gift, I was disappointed in the lack of options for African-American women with curly tresses. I wanted something that would bring a smile to my friends and family face, but it didn’t exist. Faced with this dilemma, I decided to create my own and Curly Contessa was born. My hope is to bring diversity to the marketplace through the art of gifting.
