Crowns

Art by Ivette Cabrera

 I am a Latina artist whose work relates to a story I feel needs to be told for women of all Ethnicity. I was born in Nicaragua and I am living in Miami and my pieces deal with the Identity of the people from their societies and cultures. My major influence for my art is based on my past as an immigrant to the US during the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua and growing up with split identities from Latino culture and American culture.

I further focus on the roles of women within their societies and I illustrate headdresses on the women in all of my pieces to signify their importance and the way one identifies themselves as wearing abstract crowns.
