VIEW IN MY ROOM
There is something comforting in the familiar. You will notice in my flower series for “Spring In My Step” I have incorporated everyday favourites from Happy Little Vegemites to Baked Beans Means Farts. If I could re-pack my suitcase of the time when I came over to Australia I would pack less clothes and shoes...yes I can hardly believe I said less shoes myself but it’s true. I would fill my suitcase with comforts like my favourite CDs (you can only get Afrikaans music artists on iTunes here in Australia and it’s just not the same without a cover). Physically flipping through the CDs and taking it out of the cover and putting it into the CD player is all part of setting that mood. Back in the day family photo albums (proof that your parents too were victims of fashion) when everything wasn’t digital and stored on your hard drive. Trinket boxes that my nanna gifted me... a special flower vase gifted from a dear friend, you know the little things... familiar things... comfort things... I am a gatherer and I feel comforted being surrounded by my gatherings lol! I hope that wherever these comfort paintings of mine end up, that they might bring forth comfort.

A refreshingly honest and natural artist Luna is completely self taught and uniquely original. Proudly South African of Afrikaans heritage she has a gift for capturing the amazing beauty of the African wildlife along with the stunning scenery of the region. Studying Luna’s portfolio immediately communicates to the viewer a deep love of nature that has been cultivated by having spent her youth on the family’s farm. Luna picked up her first brush at the tender age of seventeen but didn’t seriously begin her artistic pursuit until 2006. In the same year she entered her first major piece in the EPSAC New Upcoming Artist Exhibition in her home town Port Elizabeth winning the Merit Award for Best New Talent. Since then her artistic career has flourished selling numerous pieces both in South Africa and internationally, gaining quite a reputation in the process. A portfolio of Contemporary Realism strongly reflects Luna’s early days living off the land and the close bonds formed with both fauna & flora resulting in stunning portraits and close up studies. Having recently traveled to Australia she is now also focusing her considerable talent on the uniquely Australian wildlife and breathtaking outback landscapes and so a new chapter in her artistic career has begun. Luna was born on the 3rd of February 1983 in Polokwane a major urban centre which lies roughly halfway between Gauteng and the Zimbabwean border. However, due to health reasons doctors advised her parents that they move with her to a more tropical region and so when she was 4 years of age they ended up in Port Elizabeth. Also known as “The Friendly City” or “The Windy City” it is located on the shores of Algoa Bay and thus is blessed with a warm sea, benign climate, miles & miles of breathtaking coastline and stunning beaches. Port Elizabeth is the 5th largest city in South Africa but as farming runs thick throughout the Vermeulen family’s bloodline a farm was soon purchased after their arrival allowing Luna to spend her early & teenage years about 60km outside Port Elizabeth on a 806 hectare farm nestled in the picturesque Elands River Valley. The Elands River Valley connects with the Baviaanskloof Mega reserve so is rich with spectacular flora & natural wildlife like the odd leopard or for example South Africa's national bird the Blue Crane. It is also part of the protection area for the Martial Eagle.
