Biography


"...Your portraits are more than likeness and expression. They tell a story."  H.A.L.

Ms. Lutz has been a passionate artist since childhood. She is a native of the Washington, DC area and of Fairfax County, Virginia in the historic area of Clifton.  As a child, Ms. Lutz attended Benjamin Acres Country Day School, a small private school just outside of Washington, which focused on the richness of the arts, where she fondly remembers drawing a crowd around her in Kindergarten, "...where the adventure began".  She had created a bowl out of papier mache and painted it white with a flower of every color in the center.
