Amy Janell Lopez's Profile Pic

Amy Lopez is a landscape architect student with a background in art, botany, and a lot of hanging around outside. Her mission in art is guided by the desire to create works that capture attention visually, with or without a story. Botany taught her a new medium. As a practicing landscape architect student, she always designed with the random act of chance in mind. Designing to allow for the best chance at chance encounters with nature will leave an emotional mark ticked in memory when someone experiences a sensory interaction. In the meantime, her designs want to stay as an appealling backdrop to a visitors life while still providing benefits to nature. A painting is 2D but the land is something beyond.

Amy currently works for the Design-Build Division for the Bureau of Street Services located at the Public Works Office in Downtown Los Angeles as a landscape architectural intern associate.
