Although she is formally educated in fine art, as far back as early childhood, Luna has always expressed her creativity through drawing, painting, photography or multimedia.
She defines her work as interpretive yet representational, sometimes using an impressionistic style with strong, bold colors and expressive strokes.
She likes incorporating a painterly approach using loose strokes and varied colors.
Luna has always been influenced by nature and the human face and figure. She loves finding the nuances in the undertones of the skin and loves to express a sense of atmosphere in the deep shadows. "The more I look at the subject, the more colors I see."
She prefers to work from a live model, in a natural manner rather than using a photograph. She offers quality commissioned portraiture, getting a good likeness of her subject while creating an artistic interpretation.
Raised in South Florida, lived and worked on Florida's Space Coast, she has been in love with the East Tennessee area for years and had always dreamed of locating to these rural lands. She finally moved to Tennessee in 2013.
She has recently found a passion for photographing the flora and fauna of the region.
Having shown in major art festivals in Central and South Florida, as well as solo and college art shows, Luna has won several awards for her work.
