12/19 Maker Monday: Art By Yaa Rivera Featured Local Artist says

Yaasantewah Rivera is a proud Afro-Latina mother and artist originally hailing from Chicago, Illinois. Her roots are strongly connected to her Puerto-Rican heritage and such is reflected in her passions.

As a citizen of the world, she was raised to not only appreciate that from which she came but the world at large as well as has had the pleasure of residing in many different countries during her upbringing.

This upbringing has had an influence on her cultural palate and manifests be it via the careful cultivation of her four children, her immensely expressive art, or the decadent composition of worldly dishes. She has a rare condition called Addison's Disease that has greatly impacted her all her life and has rendered her disabled.

Despite this monumental hurdle, she has always set out to never settle and has successfully navigated a life full of love, happiness, and passion for herself and her children who affectionately know Yaa Rivera as La Reina del Mundo.
