About the Instructor:
Lola grew up in Southern California and was raised by hippie parents who designed paintings for meetings. Art styles on the west coast were eccentric during the 70’s and early 80’s as bodypainting was the trend on beaches from the San Diego coastline to Santa Monica pier in Los Angeles. She loved the creations at the beach as a child and my love of painting began when she was a 19 year old and living in Madrid, Spain. The great works of Goya, Van Gogh, Picasso, Dali and Rembrandt inspired her to transform most single color backgrounds into an eye popping masterpiece. She returned to San Diego and began selling at Seaside Bazaars (coastal flea market locations) on weekends. In 2005 Lola left the beach scene and relocated to Texas. Since 2012 her mixed media paintings have been featured inside Starbucks Coffeeshops, Art Nova Gallery (the Domain in Austin), Texas State University Imagine Shows (Round Rock, Texas Campus), The Conception Contemporary Art Show of Austin at Oscar Blues Brewery, May 2017 (Austin, Texas), and The Williamson County Annex (Round Rock, Texas). Currently she substitute teaches Fine Arts for Round Rock Independent School District and is a Bilingual Spanish Interpreter.
