The 42-page coloring book was illustrated and self-published by Berry. Book designs feature fashionable women embracing their textured hair, and also include a woman in a wheelchair and one with a prosthetic limb. “I wanted to create something special for girls and women of color,” she says, “Instead of being side characters in someone else’s main story, I wanted to focus on our beauty and diversity and create something to showcase that.”
Berry has been creating art ever since she was able to hold a pencil. “Creativity has always been a part of me,” she says, “My joy of creating began at the age of two and it never left. I wanted to design the coloring book that I wanted and did not have when I was younger. I also wanted to make sure that every woman of color has the opportunity to own a book like this.”
The pages of the coloring book are filled with positive, uplifting quotes. Berry says the quotes are an extra gift to her audience. “I want girls and women to feel uplifted and to see themselves within the pages.”
