Leah Lopez was raised in Northern New Mexico, a mystical and creative atmosphere that inspired her to become an artist. While studying traditional drawing and painting, she built a foundation to express technique and vision. By 2007, Lopez was a recognized emerging artist in the West and the Southwest, when she moved to New York and immediately enrolled in classes, at the famed Art Students League. Leah fell in love with the City and, much to her surprise, found herself rediscovering the elements that inspired her in her youth. Presently, Leah Lopez has tapped an endless source of inspiration, on the top floor of a 120 year old Union Square building, originally built to meet the northern exposure light requirements of New York artists. The large skylight provides incredible lighting for her subjects and a romantic feel of old New York.
