“I recognize the importance of the visual arts as the preservation and expression of culture, and I would like to assist the next generation of visual artists,” David said.

“It is important that I do my part as a Virgin Islands artist and educator to assist emerging V.I. artists,” David said that the Pandemic has given me the insight to act now on what I have planned in the past.

“Creative Callaloo” is a Virgin Islands cultural experience. The reader will travel the Caribbean’s varied and vibrant culture through its illustrated pages by artist Danica David, the passionate poetry by Winifred “Oyoko” Loving, and Virgin Islands recipes by accomplished chef Mark E. Davis. The proceeds from the book will help fund the Creative Callaloo Visual Arts Scholarship.
