Art in Cozumel: Island Artists Profiled

Two island artists highlighted :  Lupita Peralta &  Kinka Ecological Jewelry …..

This month, Greg Dietrich, owner of the Galeria Azul,  is kind enough to continue his series and highlight Lupita Peralta Mendoza and Kinka Ecological Jewelry.


Lupita Peralta Mendoza

I love to capture on the canvas, the wonders I observe in nature.

  • My works largely show the beautiful sunsets our wonderful Island of Cozumel gifts us with.
  • The flowers of the zone
  • Animals living in their natural habitat.

My works are done using different techniques: acrylic, oil and watercolors.

Every piece is a challenge because, while working on it, I relive the experience of watching sunsets or the sensation of how the flowers smell; seeing the animals in the sea or land, and that is what I wish to transmit: my feelings through this beautiful art.

Arte en Cozumel: Perfil de artistas de la Isla

Dos artistas destacadas de la Isla: Lupita Peralta y la joyería ecológica Kinka

Greg Dietrich, propietario de Galería Azul, este mes amablemente continúa con su serie resaltando a Lupita Peralta Mendoza y la joyería ecológica Kinka


Lupita Peralta Mendoza

Me encanta plasmar en el lienzo las maravillas de la naturaleza que  observo.

  • Mayormente en mis obras que he realizado se pueden apreciar los atardeceres hermosos que nos regala nuestra bella isla de Cozumel.
  • las flores de la región.
  • los animales que viven en su hábitat natural.

Mis trabajos los realizo en  diferentes técnicas: acrílico, óleo, acuarela.

Cada obra es un reto ya que al realizarla revivo la experiencia de haber estado observando los atardeceres o tener la sensación  de sentir el aroma de las flores ver a los animales en el mar o en la tierra y eso quiero transmitir mis sentimientos a través de este bello arte.

Greg Dietrich

Greg first came to Cozumel in 1988 to scuba dive and enjoy the beaches of the east side of the island. He immediately fell in love with the island and its people. His dive master convinced him he should look into buying a house here… turns out his other job was as a real estate agent. Long story short, he bought a house here on that very first visit. Greg came back to Cozumel at least twice a year for the next 10 years.

In the spring of 1998, Greg had a successful glassblowing related business in Seattle Washington, the city that is known as the glass art center in the United States. In March, on the first night of his much needed vacation, he met Liliana Macotela. This encounter changed everything.

By the end of that year, he had sold his business, packed up his engraving machine, and moved here to the island. He opened his working studio/gallery, called Galeria Azul, in the downstairs of his home. He is still there to this day and just celebrated 17 happy years of living here on the island with his wife, Liliana.
