Born in Phoenix Arizona in 1955, Lorenzo was raised on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation. He is a member of the San Carlos Apache Tribe, of the Tséch’ishjiné (Rocks Protruding Out Darkly People) clan. The clan originated from one of the two main Apache groupings situated in the Southwestern United States. This group of Apache included the Aravaipas, Pinalenos, Coyoteros, White Mountain, Tonto Apaches, and other local bands. These groups are located on what is now the San Carlos and Fort Apache Indian Reservations in east central Arizona and the smaller Tonto Apache Indian Reservation near Payson Arizona.
His art education includes studies in Junior High, High School and College. In 1976, he enrolled at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe New Mexico and received an Associate of Fine Arts Degree in 1978. He continued studies in two-dimensional design at the Atlanta College of Art in Atlanta Georgia. He attended courses in Wildlife and Business Management at the Gila Pueblo College and the University of Phoenix in Arizona. Lorenzo's work has been displayed in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. The analytical evaluation for his website reveals the International exposure of his artwork in 53 countries.

Recently, of the several hundred Arizona artists contending, 21 Artists works were chosen by the Arizona Commission on the Arts & the Arizona Art Alliance to commemorate the 2012 Arizona Centennial celebration. The only Native American artist among those chosen, Lorenzo’s painting “Apacheland” was on display for a year at the House of Representatives in Phoenix, Arizona.

The highlight of his artistic career to date has been to have a couple of his pieces to hang in the same exhibition alongside the masterpieces of renowned Western artists George Phippen, Ray Swanson, CM Russell, Frederick Remington, Olaf Weighorst, and Howard Terpning.
