Book features 40 women who earn a living off the arts

Entrepreneur Signa Greaves-Francis earlier this year released a coffee table book in commemoration of Saint Lucia’s 41st Independence anniversary. The publication is entitled “From Inspiration to Creation: Saint Lucian Women Sustaining Lives and Livelihoods through the Arts”.

The book features and celebrates 40 female Saint Lucian artistes who exemplify excellence in the arts, including entrepreneurs, arts educators, and advocates for the arts.

Signa Greaves Francis, author of the book “From Inspiration to Creation,” and founder of the School of Art and Design, explained her hopes for persons reading the publication. “I tried to capture some of their stories,” she said. “Crystal, who also wrote most of the biographies, tried to gain some background and find out how they started in their various disciplines, and also their achievements.”

She expressed her contentment with the finished product.
Signa spoke with Bernard Fanis of Calabash TV about the book honoring 40 St. Lucian women. You can view the interview here
