Artist Statement

"Mixed media artwork. Original water color on paper with graphic design elements. "Your face here" placed boldly at the head of the painting because everyone can enjoy art. I strongly believe that art is thought provoking. It can change the viewer's perspectives in ways that words alone cannot. Art is everywhere and it truly is one of the many things that make America great!" - Dakota Rais

I am a self taught artist and have been creating for over 20 years. Formally educated as a Social Worker, I strongly believe in activism through art. I am a Cuban-American woman, born and raised in Miami, Fl.

About our Prints

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
