Venesse Lewis

Venesse Lewis is the author and illustrator of Niya Hatten! Let’s Get those Coils Crowned in Satin! Born and raised in Toronto, she has deep Caribbean roots as a second-generation Jamaican. Venesse’s passion for textured hair empowerment started after she returned to her own natural coils after years of chemical processing and was inspired to share her journey of falling in love with her tightly coiled hair. Venesse is on a mission to inspire a coil-savvy world through the increased recognition of afro, kinky and zig-zag patterned hair textures.
