One of our own... spotlighting the artwork of Ileana Ponce-Gonzalez this Mother's Day
La Madre - acrylic
Ileana Ponce-Gonzalez, is not only a great Senior Advisor here at MCN, she proves an amazing artist as well. This year's Mother's Day card displays her talents, especially in capturing the essence of motherhood, Mother Nature, and feminine beauty. La Madre represents Caribbean women, specifically composed as a tribute to migrant mothers and to promote breast feeding and vibrant health. This painting was inspired by MCN's Mother's Day campaign, which seeks to help migrant mothers access the healthcare they need to have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies.
About the artist:
Originally from Nicaragua, Ileana's artistic journey is inspired by the works of Dali, Frida Khalo and the Nicaraguan Primitivist Painting Movement. She successfully represents idealized scenes of community life, the daily lives of peasants in her native country, as well as other issues such as cancer and HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention, social justice, and issues related to immigration. Her work has been showcased in clinics and healthcare facilities throughout North America, the majority of which have been donated to honor the cause.
