Edna Santiago, a self taught artist, started painting in 2006 after the tragic loss of her only son. Direct, alive, tells a story, and colorful … these are descriptions of her works in oil and acrylic.
Edna expresses life’s elements and stories in color and movement. She is a retired physical therapist and interested in assisting women and children find “their way” to reach their potential through arts. She volunteers at several Philadelphia area art centers such as the Mainline Art Center and Darlington Art Center.
Edna curated and opened an art exhibition, “Nor Wind Nor Waters,” at the Da Vinci Art Alliance in Philadelphia, PA in August 2019. This was the first of a series of exhibitions in support of Puerto Rican artists.
