Born in Honduras Tegucigalpa DC, mother of three children, she is a naturalized U.S. Citizen. Lorena graduated from Berkeley College as a Physician Assistant. She is on the Board of Directors in Community Affairs for the Essex County Latin American Chamber of Commerce. She is also assisting at the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Consulates as a medical professional for NY and NJ patrons in need of preventive healthcare.
A very skilled and accomplished artist in multiple areas, Lorena started in the art of fashion. She graduated from Instituto Nacional at her native Honduras as a professional designer in haute couture. Instituto Nacional is a prestigious institution that bore many fine art professionals, craftsmen and artisans. Lorena’s original creations take inspiration from nature in her native land. Dominant is the play of colors in the landscape and ever present life’s diversity. Basking in the many of her creations one can feel the human soul coming out of the canvases. Lorena is using a mixture of different techniques to create true and distinctive pieces of art. The passionate artist also has an expertise in the handling of a variety of industrial machines for the manufacture of garments. Lorena has demonstrated great skill in the use of these sophisticated instruments while making uniforms for the army as an operator.
Lorena Ramos is a very intelligent woman with a humble and very charming personality. The empathy she radiates is contagious. She is passionate, charismatic and affectionate, and is admired and respected by people she encounters. Lorena’s art is captivating and allows for imagination to fly. She is recognized for her spirituality and sensitivity and as an artist of vivid colors. Her canvases clearly reveal the influence of Latin American culture. Lorena affirms that her creativity and her muse is the same God who lives within herself and gives her the wisdom to create her craft. Her charitable actions and her love for people is one of her most remarkable qualities. The artist who shines with her own light is compassionate for the less fortunate. Part of her earnings as CEO of Starfinest7 are used to alleviate some financial need for those less fortunate. Many of her works have been displayed in art galleries such as Art Space in New York, Museo del Barrio NY, in the theaters and many other venues as part of the New Jersey Artists Collective, where she has been working for the past seven years.
Lorena’s life story, her failures, but also her triumphs and victories are captured in most of her paintings. Her altruistic approach of lifting others comes from her own experiences, from the time of her broken wings and inability to fly high. Spirit of peace is reflected in the artist’s life and art. Lorena’s favorite phrase, “Never let fear hold you back, what hurt you yesterday is what makes you stronger today”, is like a mantra to her approach to all layers of her life and art. Lorena launched Star Finest7 Inc., where she serves as CEO to fulfill her calling, her entrepreneurship, and to continue growing as an artist and a great entrepreneur.
Lorena was recognized recently as a Plastic Arts Artist of the Year 2023. The Award was presented by the President of the Latino Edification Multicultural Aid Center, Deigo Muñoz. The display of her beautiful pieces of art took place at the Municipal Building in Newark, NJ, and was a part of the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Congratulations on this fine achievement!
