Kenia Brea has exhibited at community galleries in the Dominican Republic where she was born, and is now living in Cary, NC. She studied art in the Special Programs of the Altos de Chavon School of Design, National Fine Arts School of the Dominican Republic and artisan centers where she obtained knowledge about metalsmithing, stained glass, sewing and other mediums. For several years, she designed commissioned wearable art and accessories in her studio in her native country. Her works are based on human behavior, flora and fauna.
Brea is currently working on an art project in which she reveals that people are caged-in by sociocultural manipulation that produces humans with clipped wings.
