Elizabeth Baez


Baez was born in Brooklyn, New York of Puerto Rican parents. Baez's art is greatly influenced by her Hispanic heritage. As a young girl, her family moved from New York to live in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. During this time, she was awakened by Puerto Rico's color, people, and most importantly, made her connection to the Puerto Rican culture. Her artwork is still impacted from these experiences. Baez depicts visual stories of cultural lifestyles and lush tropical views using bright Caribbean colors.

In addition to being a full time artist, she has served as an art teacher. For over 15 years, she has shared her experience and passion for art with children of all ages. Baez's work experience includes working with photography, graphic design, and group art exhibits. She has curated for Broward College's annual Hispanic Heritage Group Art Exhibits for 16 years.

In the summer of 2021, Baez earned her Bachelor of Arts in Art Education, with a minor in Art History at Florida International University. She has received an Associate in Arts, Pathway to a Major in Teaching from Miami Dade College and Associate in Applied Science, in Art and Advertising Design from City Tech, New York.

Through her art, she lives as an agent for community change dedicated to service, cultural preservation and advancement of Puerto Rican art across the globe.
