About Manuelita Brown

Manuelita is a self-taught artist in San Diego, CA. Her sculptures are authentically personal, evoking an emotional feeling from a conceptual foundation. 

She specializes in both portrait and bronze figurative sculptures that celebrate ordinary people. In a world where we often judge each other based on our differences, Manuelita strives to connect her audience to the universal, collective human experience. 

“I create sculptures intended to elicit compassion and a sense of common humanity–of identification with the 'other'", according to Manuelita. "I have acquired a sensitivity to universal human experience, although my perspective as an African-American woman is often evident."

She creates portrait sculptures, public sculpture art, private commissions and a variety of figurative pieces. Her sculptures can be seen throughout the world.  You can explore more of her sculpture work online!
