Raul Julia blazed a trail as a role model in his personal and professional life. From his humble Puerto Rican beginnings, to becoming a stage and film star--Julia proved that passion and compassion were the tools necessary to reach ones dreams. Baez, painted the portrait, to capture the spirit of the Puerto Rican culture and project Julia's depth of character. "Although most people remember Raul Julia for his portrayal of Gomez Addams in 'The Addams Family' (1991) and its sequel 'Addams Family Values' (1993), what they don't know is his efforts to eradicate hunger with 'The Raul Julia Ending Hunger Fund' and that the 'Raul Julia Scholarship Fund' was named in his honor. It's purpose is to benefit exemplary Puerto Rican youth in need of financial assistance to pursue their college education," said Baez.

Elizabeth E. Baez was born in Brooklyn, New York, but spent her early teenage years at "The Isla de Encanto." Her passion is to bring to life colors, textures and emotions that evoke serenity and joy. "This portrait was the perfect opportunity to celebrate my heritage--my passion--and the need to make a difference in my community," said Baez. Her art work has premiered at Saint Auvent Gallery, France; DAVINCI'S Gallery, International Show, Coral Gables; Coconut Grove Arts Festival with the South Florida Artwork Show, Coconut Grove; Les Journees Europeennes du Partimoine, France; among others.
