Cozbi A. Cabrera

Cozbi A. Cabrera walked away from a successful career as an art director at Sony Music to “discover, create and share pockets of grace and beauty.” Her creations have taken on many forms. She is the illustrator of several books for children, including Most Loved in All the World (Houghton Mifflin), Thanks A Million (Greenwillow Books), Stitchin’ and Pullin’ (Random House).

In addition Cozbi makes handmade Muñecas — “dolls” in Spanish — and womens’s clothing that sell in her Brooklyn boutique. She’s been featured on Oprah and in Black Enterprise Magazine.

Most recently, she contributed a striking illustration to the book Our Children Can Soar: A Celebration of Rosa, Barack, and the Pioneers of Change (pictured below).
