"I created a colourful print for the non-profit COPI (Corporación Piñones se Integra) featuring two coconut waters on the sand of Piñones next to the Mangrove Forest, an amazing natural environment outside San Juan. The image in the print depicts coco frio, a coconut water you can enjoy while at Piñones and based on the amazing hand-painted signage for this beverage that is advertised around the area. I have been traveling to Puerto Rico for many years and have gotten to know the island as an artist by showing my work there and by making work there. I also learned a lot from Puerto Rico's murals, architecture, painted towns, natural wonders, markets and most especially through relationships I have been building with the artists I met there. While making the print I visited COPI, a team working to develop Piñones as its residents aspire to 'transform the community into a space of greater cooperation, justice and solidarity.' Like COPI, I wish that Piñones retains its natural beauty and biodiversity while also developing to serve its citizens." — Katherine Bernhardt
