My art was also feature on the publication The Ledger, and you can find the article here. It was surreal to see something I created out to the public eyes.

It was a great experience curated by Volume Art Collective and Lakeland Women Collective, honored to be part of it.

Where was I and what am I doing next?

It has been more than 4 months since I have written words in this space. I have travel to Ecuador, Panamá, Turkey and back home to Puerto Rico. I saw a lot of color and I have much to paint inspired by it. I cant wait to show you photos of my travels and my creative process.

But for now, I will tell you about an art show I will be part of. Is called Pink Moon, a gallery showcase of Lakeland Women Artists & Musicians o April 19th! I will be showcasing my art piece “Diosas”.

“Diosas”, Mix Media on Canvas.

A piece about the force of womanhood.  Every culture I know, had or has her powerful diosas.  One that is very special to me, from my dear Borikén, is Atabey, the supreme goddess of the Tainos.  She is the female entity who represents the Earth Spirit and the Spirit of all horizontal water, lakes, streams, the sea, and the marine tides.

In South America, the natives adored their Pachamama, known as the earth/time mother. In Inca mythology, Pachamama is a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting, embodies the mountains.  Believe me, I felt her force when I visited Ecuador. 

When I traveled to Turkey, I discovered Cybele, (KYBELE) the ancient Phrygian Mother of the Gods, a primal nature goddess worshipped with orgiastic rites in the mountains of central and western Anatolia.

What they all have in common? The force of Womanhood.
