Went back home to California for a couple of days to visit family and a sick friend. I made this Terra Cotta bowl for her and planted a strawflower torch cactus in it.

Olivia Peguero is an Afrolatina artist from the Dominican Republic. Peguero’s paintings are distinguished by her use of Dominican landscapes and fauna, particularly flowers, which represent the repeating cycle of birth, life and death and also pride in her Dominican roots.
Aside from being a painter, Peguero is the founder of the “Peguero Arte Libros Foundations” and the “Art Books for Education Project”, two foundations that focus on art education for Dominican children in rural areas.
