Luz Spanks is a resident of La Habra since 1993. She is an auditor by profession but at an artist at heart. At a young age, she wanted to be an entertainer because she could easily sing songs from memory. She also thought of becoming a fashion designer since she loved to draw and design clothes. Luz had a passion for producing programs to showcase talents of her friends and relatives. She learned how to play the guitar to be able to accompany herself and others in singing during shows. If she’s not creating art, auditing, writing, or performing, she stages houses and events. In 2010, she transformed a 1000 sq ft conference hall as a showroom for Asian and Pacific Islander cultures during the First Asian Pacific Heritage Luncheon at the Los Angeles County Office of Education in Downey, California. She turned to painting to help raise funds for non-profit organizations. Her paintings help raised funds for the La Habra High School Band and the Asian Pacific Heritage Group. To improve her painting techniques, she started art lessons with Lisa Suttle in Michael’s La Habra branch in 2012. In April 2013, she joined the La Habra Art Association which runs the La Habra Art Gallery. She curated two shows with journalist friend, Nimfa Rueda, Peace On Earth: Visions of Love, Peace, and Tranquility in November and the Light and Shadow Photo Exhibit in February. She is currently the Event and Media Coordinator, and the Webmaster for the La Habra Art Association.
