Lameka Alston is a modern artist in the crafting industry. She graduated from Strayer University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resources.
Growing up in Arkansas, she has always been accustomed to crafts. Her mom would decorate their home with handmade wooden pieces or handmade pillows. Her mother’s love for it, influenced her love for all things handmade.
Her artistry began in 2006 as she began creating paper projects and mixed media crafts for friends and family. She soon realized the industry lacked diversity in the characters they offered. Lameka wanted to create images that she could connect with.
In 2014, she released her first natural girls stamp set “Kinky Girl”. This set featured an African American women with natural hair, that could be changed with wigs. The stamp set was well received in the crafting community! The voices of the African American crafting community praised her contributions. This only fueled her desire to create more images. Only she did not limit her collection to African American women, she wanted to enable ALL women to find crafting supplies with images they could relate to.
In 2016, Lameka now owns and operates her company, Pink Bow Ties, Inc. out of her home in Columbia, Maryland. Her product line includes dolls that represent all ethnicities and incorporates details such as hair wraps, hair styles, clothing and accessories to give them each their own unique personality. She translates current trends and modern influence into her products.
Our stamps are made in the United States and are 100% Photopolymer.
