Mujer en El Jardin #5
Overview

Cano’s works capture the beauty, strength, elegance and pride of Latinas and all women of color. The lush oversized canvases are striking and the large open faces are expressive and real.

Cano’s work has evolved into a unique style blending acrylics with oils on large canvases. She has focused on depicting women, including representations of the Madonna.

Her current series, "Mujeres del Siglo", includes the images of bold, beautiful faces of dark-haired women. Inspired by her summer experiences spent in Mexico as a child, her portrayals of elegant women dressed in shawls evoke memories of a romantic era gone by.
