Elizabeth Erazo Baez was born in Brooklyn, New York of Puerto Rican parents. Baez's art is greatly influenced by her Hispanic heritage. As a young girl, her family moved from New York to live in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.
During this time, she was awakened by Puerto Rico’s color, people, and most importantly, made her connection to the Puerto Rican culture. Her artwork is still impacted from these experiences. Baez depicts visual stories of cultural lifestyles and lush tropical views using bright Caribbean colors.
