Flora Fong Garcia, 70, was born to a Chinese father and a Cuban mother. Her paintings blend the bright light and vivid colors which shape the landscape of the Caribbean, the history and culture of Cuba where she grew up and developed into an artist and the paintings and poems of Ming (1368-1644) artists which have greatly fascinated her.

Garcia is holding an exhibition at the Capital Library of China in Beijing, Ming in the Caribbean: Images, Calligraphy, Poetry, and it runs through July 1. On show are 20 paintings by which she pays tribute to the rich traditions of the land she was raised in, and the culture of Ming.

Besides a reflection of her cross-cultural background, Garcia also expresses a feminine perspective in works to hail women's bravery, tolerance and tenderness.
