The Artist

Colors of Africa Art & Design was founded by Cynthia Gail Manor, a digital artist, IT professional, and poet from Austin, Texas. In 2010, she began studying graphic and web design at Austin Community College. Her love affair with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator began, and as her skill level grew, she began sharing her artwork on social media.

A Brand is Born

Ms. Manor began to design artwork for products on Zazzle, a custom print-on-demand markplace based in California. This site not only allows customers to upload photographs and artwork onto products, but also allows designers to upload their artwork onto products and receive royalties and referral earnings on sales.

Our Designs & Products

Our designs are primarily inspired by African American themes, African Textile Art and Abstract Art. Our artwork appears on greeting cards, phone and iPad cases, including OtterBox phone cases, luggage tags, throw pillows, blankets, and more!
