Migdalia Caban's Bio: Narrated by Bill Kaffenberg, Video and CD recorded by: Amariah Recordings

boricua artist, artista puertorriqueña, pintora puertorriquena

"Si mil veces pudiera volver a nacer,
rogaría a Dios, que mil veces me permitiese volver a nacer Puertorriqueña"
Migdalia Cabán




Latin-American artist, Migdalia Cabán, also known as 'Boricua MC', expresses herself through different styles and media, to include oil and acrylics.  Her passion for life and art is vividly depicted in her colorful paintings.  Her artwork is kindled by her playful and inquisitive mind and her boundless passion for life’s new experiences.

Born in Puerto Rico, she later traveled to different countries, and has been living in the state of Colorado in the United States, since 1993. 

Influenced by a family of artist and musicians, she had an inclination for the arts from early childhood; but  had a strong passion for science and teaching, so for several years, she studied Biology and Secondary Education at the University of Puerto Rico, and  Florida State University.   But in 2004,  Migdalia  had a dream, which ignited her passion and first experience with painting. Without any previous experience or instruction, she took her first leap of faith in the art world and painted her first piece, titled; "A Spanish Song"  (2004) a portrait of her mother, published on  the American and the America Artists magazine, October Edition, 2006.

In 2006, as her new found love and  passion for painting kept growing stronger, Migdalia decided to expand her education in art, and in 2008 she graduated with a BA from the University of Colorado.  Against all odds and in the middle of the economical recession, she decided to pursue a career as an artist. Today, her art is available and sold in art galleries, exhibits, and on the Internet.  She does paintings on commission, and provides public painting demonstrations, as well as private lessons, and workshops.  She loves teaching others to paint, and strives to make a difference, and help others through her art.


Migdalia deeply enjoys painting landscapes, on plein air, and in her studio.  One of her favorite subject...  Colorado's Aspens.
