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.
