Coming from a family of self taught artists, Anne Lopes, has been honing her inherited creativity into inspired and meaningful art since 1995, when she began to use her artistic skills as a way to find inner peace and personal restoration. Today she is an awarded professional artist, with pieces hanging in both the Huachuca Art Association Gallery in Sierra Vista and the Endeavor Gallery in Benson. She is a member on the HHA Board of Directors. Her choice of medium mostly centers on acrylic but she also experiments with watercolors and pencil sketching. Anne draws her artistic inspiration from God’s promise of love, His presence in our lives and from her empathy towards her family, friends, and those she meets along the way. The evidence of her inspiration was shown in her first sold painting, “Healing Grace - Jesus Heals the Leper”, which was inspired by her daughter's diagnosis of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and spoke to the soul of the buyer. Another example of her ability to put inspiration to canvas was with her
painting “Arduous Voyage”, which won the “People's Choice” Award at the 2022 Huachuca Art Gallery Show. When Anne puts her brush to canvas, her greatest wish is for her paintings to speak to the soul, to spread peace, to be enjoyed in every home.
