    "I paint my culture because it is beautiful and full of vibrant colors; it is unique..."

    Guadalupe Reyes (Lupita) was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, and now lives in central New Jersey. The youngest of seven children, she spent most of her childhood being raised by her grandmother who was more like a mother to her. Her grandmother was the one who noticed Guadalupe’s natural artistic talent, and encouraged her, calling, her “La Pintora.”

    Just before she turned sixteen, Guadalupe immigrated to the United States to join her family. She had a dream of improving her abilities in painting and started studying art in Hightstown High School soon after learning English as her second language. Not long after Guadalupe came to this country, her grandmother passed away, an event which has had a profound impact on Guadalupe and her art.

    After finishing high school, Guadalupe entered Mercer County Community College, where she was awarded an AB in Business Management in 2010. But she couldn’t let go of her dream of making art. She returned to MCCC and continued her visual arts studies with internationally renowned artist Mel Leipzig, and other gifted instructors including Kyle Stevenson and Terry McNichol.

    She was awarded two painting scholarships in 2011, based on her talent, that allowed her to continue her education. In 2013, Guadalupe received her Fine Arts degree from Mercer County Community College and was recognized, again, with both the Jack Harris Memorial Scholarship for painting excellence and the Mel Leipzig Scholarship for outstanding work by a graduating artist.

    Even before she graduated, Guadalupe had begun to exhibit successfully. At first she exhibited in more local venues including the Gallery at MCCC; Ellarslie, the Trenton City Museum; and the West Windsor Arts Center. In 2012, however, she began to receive invitations to show her work in exhibitions in New York and California, and has recently begun to exhibit her work internationally.
