I am a Los Angeles based writer, performer, and filmmaker. I am the daughter of a Cuban revolutionary and runner up Miss Cuba 1959. Being brought in to the world by these two larger than life personalities has colored every aspect of my life. I made a solo show of that experience, Daughter of a Cuban Revolutionary, which toured the U.S., Europe, and Mexico. I am a multi-lingual, multi-disciplinary artist. I create stories that unearth lost histories and give voice to those silenced or forgotten.

Chibas’ real coup is in her portraiture...the characters in Shelter’s sharply sketched collage…are notable for the disarming, everyday sameness of their aspirations to those of any American adolescent living in Sherman Oaks or Highland Park.LA Weekly
