Luna Smith (know as Lu) is an established Scottish painter. Her works are sold to collectors worldwide, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Luna was born in Manchester, UK. Her passion for art has been around since she was little. Lu often found herself in awe of her nature and would draw landscapes and birds for hours. Since winning her first art competition in primary school, she knew who she wanted to be. And even though many hardships and painful life experiences delayed her, she never lost sight of the path to her dreams.
Lu has travelled a lot and lived in various countries. From these experiences, she has learned much from the languages, cultures, customs, architecture, and natural environments. And they inspire her in her work.
Luna is specialising in oils. With her first brushstroke, she had fallen in love with this medium. Its thick and visible texture is captivating and admittedly reveals the artist’s thoughts. The struggle, the fun, and the energy that went into the painting are on full display. Her unique style takes advantage of this and interprets the things she sees and hears around her with vigorous loose brushstrokes blended with expressive finger work. It not only shows the surface level of the subject, but it also allows her to paint its soul.
