Cubana Ballerina is fiber art based on one of my photographs of a ballerina who dances for the Cuban Ballet. I photographed several ballerinas in an old building in Havana, covered in graffiti. She is dancing in the morning sun through an open window. I love her grace and the flowing sheer draped over her leg. I covered her totally in thread. The background is free motion embroidery that allows the minute details of the graffiti art to be seen.
