of just the right glint of light in a lions eye

Is it good enough?

About Luna Vermeulen
As a 16 year old I struggled with depression, as a consequence leaving High School during 10th Grade but finishing Matric through home schooling. During this difficult period my mom encouraged me to get a hobby. My sister was the one who loved art and one day I started fiddling around with her oil paints, much to her dismay. My first attempts were hideous but through my mom's eyes they were perfect. I don't know what she saw in those first few, maybe it's just a mother's biased view, but I know that if it wasn't for her prodding me on I would have left my brushes to gather dust long ago.
Today almost 19 years on I'm a Contemporary Realist working in oil and watercolour, much more comfortable in my media of choice. Painting has become my passion and I can't imagine life without it.
I'm inspired by the everyday beauty that surrounds us. In painting, I am absorbed by what I see, feel and experience. I enjoy painting anything and everything, I look at life around me and almost get a feeling of slight panic as I find there is still so much that I want to paint.
