Timeless and Elegant

The Artwork of Leah Lopez


New York City artist,  Leah Lopez
is known for her paintings that capture elegance and romance.


Angels Wear White   38 x 46, oil on linen.  


She is particularly admired for her atmospheric lighting, and for creating compositions that hint at dramatic narrative, even romance, without specifying exactly what’s happening.
— Fine Art Connoisseur
It was a particular quality of her still life paintings that most captured my attention. For lack of a better word, I might call it “presence”. Her still life subjects have immediacy, a painterly, tactile surface quality and a refined sense of composition...

Her portrait and figurative subjects are often moody and theatrical, with figures emerging from deep chiaroscuro. Her landscapes and cityscapes are more direct, but also often deal in shadow.

Her Story

Leah Lopez was born in New Mexico where brilliant colors are the backdrop for a unique landscape, where diverse cultures have converged with tradition and art, making a “Land of Enchantment”.  Growing up in the midst of this was the beginning of the woman and artist we know today.  However, Leah would meet many challenges.  As a child, Leah’s creative growth was stifled by a devoutly religious family.  She imagined a life where she could freely express her creative passions and began plotting her escape.  At age 18, Leah decided to pursue it and was rejected by her friends and family.

Leah spent the next few years immersed in the study of drawing and painting.  When possible, she’d take classes then return to her studio and experiment for days and nights.  Eventually, she developed a dexterous handling of her favorite medium and Leah became a well-known emerging artist in the Southwest.  Around this time, she reunited with her sister.  Though, grateful for the time they had together, it was short lived when her sister died in an accident.  Devastated and seeking solace, Leah recalled how they shared the love of the stories with characters living lives full of adventure.  And for Leah the greatest place for an adventure was New York City. 

Life has a strange way of repeating itself.  Once again, taking just the necessities and a few months’ rent, Leah began a new journey into an unknown world.  She recalls, “I've always been an explorer and a seeker, these experiences serve as inspiration for my paintings”.  New York would prove to be her greatest challenge.  Leah had to work harder than ever and her hard work paid off when she opened up the Leah Lopez Atelier at Union Square.  As an artist, she is highly respected and her paintings are celebrated. With gallery representation across the states and students flocking to the Atelier to study, she maintains the same hard working schedule to develop her latest body of work.  More than ever, Leah’s paintings are passionately inspired by her life and experiences on this riveting, creative journey.
