When I Was Puerto Rican: A Memoir by Esmeralda Santiago
About 90% of the people in my paintings are real people. I have had the great fortune of painting amazing people who have been good friends over the years. In honor of international women’s day here are some of the amazing mujeres I’ve had the honor of both painting and calling friend or family. My life is better because of all of you. Thank you for each being a part of my journey and helping me grow as a human being.
