A LA Native with an affinity for all things “ART” LuLu is an artist and art educator. She has been creating visual candy since she was old enough to hold a crayon. LuLu earned her BA in Fine Arts at Loyola Marymount University and since then has been developing a personal style that reflects her world. At it’s core her work reflects relationships of color, space and the emotional rollercoaster of our interpersonal relationships with our environment. As a result her work often manifests itself into an animalistic or naturalistic interpretation of life. Her goal is to allow the viewer into her most vulnerable thoughts, through her eyes onto the canvas.
