Hope was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in Mexico City. She began to develop her talent while a child and knew that art was going to be a major part of her life. She attended Mexico City College, Chicago Academy of Fine Art, and received a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Northern Colorado in 1970.


Her style is semi-impressionistic and she prefers painting plein air because the immediacy of the moment helps keep her work fresh, loose, and interesting. Hope prefers to paint in oils with a palette knife as she enjoys the spontaneous effects created by painting wet into wet. Unlike many artists who create only the illusions of nature, Hope's ability to control the use of the knife allows her to capture the landscape with color, texture, and contrast that convey her emotions to the viewer.


She began to produce etchings two years ago. Four images are currently available in limited editions.


Hope also teaches workshops in Drawing and in Knife Painting in Mendocino, Walnut Creek, Sacramento, Bermuda, Maui, and Kauai.


Hope is the recipient of many awards and she has enjoyed success in numerous solo exhibitions. Her works can be found in important private, corporate, and government collections throughout the United States and abroad.
