The Artist


Luanne Hebner Perez began to seriously paint in the 1970's and was thrilled to discover she could do it. She worked with oils on board or canvas depicting scenes of Americana, for this was the era of the 1776 Bicentennial celebration. More recently, she works exclusively with watercolors, creating scenes of Fillmore and the Santa Clara River Valley that has long been her home. She also spends time painting images of favorite places in Europe.

Luanne was educated as a home economist at U.C. Santa Barbara and U.C. Davis. She is recognized around town as "you taught me to cook and sew in Jr. High." In 2002, after 24 years, she retired from teaching Life Management classes at Fillmore Middle School. She has lived in California nearly all of her life.

Luanne is drawn to beauty:
   · Picturesque towns and lush farm country
· Architecture from ancient to brand new
· Painting in vibrant watercolors
· Photos of significant people and places

Traveling throughout North America and Europe has always been a part of her life. Luanne continues to go places and paint. She makes this a priority in her life. Each month she spends a minimum of two nights away from home; but more usually, it is a week away - or three weeks is better.
