Cristina Luna lives and paints in a small pueblo outside of the City of Oaxaca de Juárez in southern Mexico. Her work centers on environmental art highlighting issues that affect our oceans and our wildlife.
She received her degree in Visual Arts from the Escuela Nacional de Pintura Escultura y Grabado of the National University of Fine Arts in Mexico City, and her work has been exhibited in the United States, Canada and throughout México.
To create her haunting and evocative paintings of threatened species and endangered animals, Luna uses both natural materials such as beeswax and sand, plus natural varnishes made of copal or dammar or acrylics with depth producing surface techniques.
