overview

At the age of six, Lupe saw the painting “The Hay Wain” by John Constable, and was mesmerized. She recalls sitting for hours, staring at the painting, thinking, “This is so beautiful.” In that instant, she knew that she wanted to be an artist. Lupe wanted to create artwork that would stir up emotions in others as “Hay Wain” had done for her.

”Peace and Harmony are the essence and inspiration of my paintings. Imagine yourself as you view my artwork, in a place where there’s complete tranquility. Bask in the peacefulness of the moments. For a time, you forget the chaos and turmoil of the world and enter a place full of joy and beauty. Allow the serenity of my scenes to overtake your senses and transport you to the cities and setting where my art takes place.”

about the artist

At the age of six, Lupe saw the painting “The Hay Wain” by John Constable, and was mesmerized. She recalls sitting for hours, staring at the painting, thinking, “This is so beautiful.” In that instant, she knew that she wanted to be an artist. Lupe wanted to create artwork that would stir up emotions in others as “Hay Wain” had done for her.

During high school, Lupe began to express her artistic desire. However, an art teacher discouraged her by stating that she did not have the talent to make it as an artist. Her dream, crushed by these words, went unfulfilled for many years.

Later in life, a crisis left Lupe feeling empty, causing her to search her soul, and ask, “What will make me happy?” Remembering her childhood dream of being an artist, Lupe picked up the paintbrush again. She began taking classes at Covenant Centre International and the Palm Beach Armory. And to the chagrin of that high school art teacher, Lupe discovered that indeed, she had talent. With encouragement from many friends, she began exhibiting.

Since 2002, Lupe has been exhibiting her art at such prestigious places as the Hibel Museum, Governor’s Club, Palm Beach County Convention Center, The Breakers, Frenchman’s Preserve, Harriett Himmel Theater, Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, and in the states of Georgia and South Carolina.
