Juana Fernández-Hamer

My name is Juana M.Fernández-Hamer. I was born in Cuba in 1966. I left with my nuclear family members from Cuba (still have members that live there) and lived in Spain, Miami, NY and finally settled in northern NJ. I graduated from Memorial High School in West New York, NJ and ran track and field on a scholarship at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, where I met my husband. I have two sons and I have been married since 1995.

I have been teaching since 2001 and I hold two master’s degrees in Education. My passion is working in acrylics and working with subjects that inspire me. Find your way to listen to Las Caras Lindas (de mi gente negra) by Ismael Rivera. This is the mantra that inspires me to paint these rich portraits. Making art makes me feel like God poured something very special into me that not many other people have. I feel the spirit of God in me when I paint. I like to create visually stimulating works that make people feel something special.
