Born in Honduras, Luz-Maria Lopez moved to the United States to study art. After developing her talent and displaying her work, Lopez garnered praise from many, including noted art critic F. Lennox Campello, who describes her pieces as â€œrich with narrative interest and intelligent composition.â€ To create her pieces, which are collected both nationally and internationally, Lopez draws from her past, incorporating her background, culture, interests, and history, resulting in meaningful works.
Lopez was commissioned by Southeastern Louisiana University to design and execute a series of panels depicting the various creation myths of the native peoples of the Americas. Her work was also selected for a project hosted by Griffith University in Queensland, Australia and has been featured in exhibits in the Alexandria Museum of Art, the Masur Museum of Art, and the Hunter Museum of American Art, among others.
Lopez earned a bachelor of arts degree from Southeastern Louisiana University, and in addition to graduating magna cum laude, was recognized as an outstanding graduate by the visual arts department. Lopez resides in Covington, Louisiana.
