Guadalupe Soto

Guadalupe is a visual artist whose work focuses primarily on painting and drawing. Guadalupe likes to work in layers, sharing that first she likes to paint, and then, when the painting is dry, she likes to draw on top of the paint. Lupe says collage is a fun process, but glue is messy, which she doesn’t like as much.

A devoted colorist, Guadalupe likes all colors, but especially red. In her home she likes to make jewelry and write in her journals. Guadalupe’s mother is an important figure in her life and art practice who always encourages her. Another important influence for Guadalupe’s practice are Disney animated films, especially the Frozen films.

In the future Guadalupe wants to explore dancing and singing more and to continue to develop her painting practice.
