Oil on Stretched Canvas. This takes me back to the care free days & visits on my grandparents farm. The smell of aniseed, cinnamon & fresh coffee hanging in the cold morning air. A short stout figure always dressed in some flower print dress& perfectly laid curls stiring the pot of melkkos on the warm toasty aga stove. All would be gathering around the aga rubbing their hands hoping for some of the heat to breathe back the life in their cold numb feet. Grandpa would have just stepped in with the milk bucket and nanna yelling at his dirty shoe prints. He'd pull out his pipe fill it with tabaco & call me over. I'd hop on his lap and he would run his bent callus fingers first slow then faster & faster on the kitchen table and say can you hear the horses running? Outside an impatient rooster would ruffle his feathers once again and greet the rising sun with his best crow possible. These really were the good ole days!

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.
