About the Artist

Lucy Quintero Pic1

“My passion for painting is rooted in nature and the fascination I have for light , shade, shapes and color…. That has drawn me to paint… I want to share the beauty I see in the world”.

A native of Colombia, Lucy grew up enjoying the mountains and the tropical beaches where she found a great appreciation for nature. In high school she was interested in many forms of art and later, when she received a degree in Architecture, her passion for art focussed on oil painting. After graduating, she attended private classes with different teachers and also participated in numerous workshops to improve the technique.

Although she is known for her depictions of landscapes and still life, Lucy’s work is very diverse and includes a wide variety of subjects. Her richly colored style has afforded her the opportunity of showing her work in private collections and shows in Bogota, Florida and Canada.

Lucy believes that the force and passion in her paintings comes from her care for her subjects whether still life, figure or an beautiful landscape. Currently living in Newmarket, Ontario, she finds inspiration in the endless wonder of the seasons and the beautiful surroundings that Canada has to offer.
