Southwest Art


Elisa Arancibia

Where do you live and work? I live and work in the city of Ontario, CA, which is located east of Los Angeles and surrounded by the San Bernardino Mountains.

What are your favorite subjects to paint? My favorite subjects to paint are landscapes and seascapes.

How would you describe your style? My style is realism; I’m attempting to portray the subject as it actually appears in real life. I’m rendering specific landscape locations using a limited palette of oil paints, capturing a sense of time and place, and creating a painting with a serene atmosphere. Light, movement, and energy are the main focus of my paintings.

Where did you study art? I started studying art as a side class while studying to be a teacher in the 1990s in my home country of Peru. Later I took painting classes at the “MALI,” the Museo de Arte de Lima. Soon after that, I moved to California and took a variety of workshops taught by accomplished artists.

My proudest accomplishment was to have my art displayed at Ontario International Airport
