096 From the Convent to the art world: The journey of artist Anabel Ruiz

Anabel was born in La Habana, Cuba, in 1974, in a Cuba that was picturesque, quirky and resourceful – a Cuba that laughed through the pain – characteristics that are reflected in her own persona.  Her family left Cuba for Spain when she was 9, and there her father secured a scholarship for her to a private Catholic school.  It was here that she began to acquire her appreciation for art, at that time mostly for the great classic artists and their works; and it was here that her formation as a self-taught artist commenced.​ She was uprooted again at 14 when her family moved to the US, to Miami, like so many other Cuban exiles, to make a new life. Her high school education complete, she studied Business Administration, deaf to the voice of her soul that constantly reminded her that her passion is art and that her life should follow that passion.  And so she graduated from college very well prepared to “make a living”, but empty and dissatisfied; knowing  that making a living is not equal
