Biography 
Known as the "Painter of Happiness", Elizabeth Peña was born in Lima, Peru, on July 08, 1966. Elizabeth Peña is one of those rare natural talents and she is quickly evolving into a master painter. She began her artistic path as a very young girl by making beautiful drawings that so impressed her parents they convinced her to attend art school. Despite her doubts about attending an art school she complied with her parents’ advice and started to hone her skills. While in art school Peña focused all of her time on her drawings and advanced her talents at a surprisingly quick pace. It was not long before she was quite well known for her art independence at her school “Escuela Nacíonal Superior Autonoma de Bella Artes del Peru”. After graduating from art school Peña continued her studies of painting and drawing and also began teaching others. She held a number of seminars including “Taller de Historia del Arte” at the University Católica and a number of seminars at the University of Lima in Peru. Peña has always shown a great appreciation for the great artists of the past. She is particularly fond of the great impressionist artists, most specifically Rembrandt. Peña also credits two Peruvian artists from the past century as great influences on her work; the style of Baca Flor and the sobriety of Merino’s paintings. However, she says that her greatest influence has been the French Old-Master Fatin-Latour. With her recent introduction to the American market she has received critical acclaim and has been met with wonderful commercial success. Peña’s work is now being shown in dozens of galleries all across the United States and Canada as well as other destinations across the globe.
