About Lorena’s Own art:

As a visual artist her artworks are exhibited and collected internationally. She lived and worked in Singapore for seven years and currently has her art studio and life in Houston, Texas.

I paint to represent my emotional reality and my commitment to my passions, as the elements that guide the directions in which I take my life. Passions defined not as mere feelings or sensations, but as powerful insights into the being that I really am.
