Hope Lugo, an award-winning Florida artist, paints portraits, still lifes, and nature scenes with meaningful implements.  Whether origami cranes of peace bursting from a broken guitar's opening or the tranquil notes in the cool blue background of life, elements in each painting represent a larger idea.  Literature, poetry, and song lyrics inspire the majority of her work, which has been shown in galleries and museums in Florida and New York and purchased worldwide.
