art, photography, and daydreams.
Despite the two names, I'm just one person. "Mary" represents the traditional, simple, nostalgic, vintage side of my aesthetic. "Luna" is the whimsical, daydreaming, eccentric, night owl part of me. Mary is down to earth and Luna is in the clouds. Mary is day and the sun, Luna is night and the moon. Mary is the little girl that I still am in my heart, and Luna is the big world I'm exploring with a sense of wonder. It's all me. One big dichotomy that somehow blends together beautifully.
I have wanted to be an artist since I was a little kid, but I never really knew what that would mean for me. Somehow in 2012, Mary & Luna poured out of my heart and my hands. I officially launched my Etsy shop in 2013. It's been quite a steep learning curve, but this is exactly what I'm meant to be doing: dreaming and creating.
My hope is to provide pieces of art that are sweet, simple, and calm. Home is the most important thing to me, and I love any art piece that can help make a room feel like a reflection of the person who spends time in it. I want my art and photography to feel like a daydream of home, a happy thought.
