Soraida's Artist Statement

"My art reflects the essence of my true self and the truth within me. My perspective is unique: I am a woman, a Puerto Rican, an artist, a designer and a businessowner. My experience is diversity: I come from the inner city, I've spent most of my life in maintream America and I've come to know both worlds and their people. My struggle is for recognition, acceptance and inclusion; and, against racism, sexism and the dominant eurocentric male society, which never expected much from me but still did not allow my voice to be heard. My belief is that one must empower oneself with one's own truth. This is my art: Verdadism."
