About Elizabeth Peña:
Elizabeth Peña was born in Lima, Peru and was a naturally gifted artist from the start. She made beautiful drawings at a young age. This prompted her parents to persuade her to attend art school. Peña did start attending school and it became a time for developing her magnificent drawing skills. She was well known at school for her art independence. Peña has always loved the classics. She especially admires Rembrandt. The biggest influence on her, however, is the French master Fatin-Latour. Other influences include the style of Baca Flor and the sobriety of Merino, both of whom are Peruvian artists from the past century. Despite her recent introduction to the American market, her work has been received with acclaim. Presently, Peña is showing in more than 20 galleries in the United States and Canada.
