Chrysa Jacobs is a Caribbean artist hailing from the twin-island federation of St. Kitts-Nevis, where she acquired an associate degree in general studies of literature, art and design, and sociology. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art at Midwestern State University with concentrations in ceramics, printmaking and graphic design.
Her artwork fuses African symbols with Kittitian iconography to covey the complex concept of a Caribbean diaspora.
Jacobs’ work has been displayed in Juanita Harvey Gallery at Midwestern State University as well as the University of Dallas Museum. Over the last four years, she has participated in MSU’s annual Empty Bowls Project and offered her expertise to the Girl Scouts by assisting in various clay activities.
