Luz Maria Lopez

Luz-Maria Lopez was born in Honduras, Central America in 1944. After coming to the United States in 1964 to study, Lopez spent many years in the workforce. In 1995, fulfilling a lifelong dream, Lopez received her Bachelor of Arts degree, Magna Cum Laude, from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana.

Inspired by Mayan ancestry and the memories of childhood stories told to her by her grandmother, Luz Maria Lopez paints from a colorful, mythological world.

Lopez paints women with big feet and large toes to symbolize a woman's strength; stars to represent the nights of her youth; the heart to represent "love and sorrow, life and death, hope and resurrection".

Among the exhibitions Lopez has had her work shown at are: the Le Mieux Galleries, New Orleans, LA; Thomas V. Robinson Galleries, Houston, TX; The Latin America Art Exhibition: Masters of the Imagination Agora Gallery, New York, NY; Art for Healing Gala Memorial Health Care System, Chattanooga, TN and Arty Gras Warehouse District, Washington, D. C.

Lopez has been awarded the Louisiana Division of the Arts Artist Fellowship as well as the Liquitex Excellence in Art Grant and Lopez garnered the First Prize in the Frida Khalo International Portraits competition. Numerous individuals and corporations collect her work.
