Luna’s work draws upon metaphors, phenomena, and animism. Her choices in mediums is driven from what the material personifies, and how it echoes the work's intention through intrinsic properties e.g. touch, temperature, weight, strength. Her works translate the lyricism of our visceral senses through form and process, inviting a meditative focus for the viewer to assign their own meaning. Her work aims to immerse viewers in silence and solitude for she believes this state of mind is the connects our consciousness to our spiritual selves. Her latest series is called "Jyaku", meaning nirvana in Japanese, as her sculptures are meant to act as portals into one's primal consciousness.

Luna was born in Japan and raised Los Angeles where she now lives and works. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design’s Industrial Design program in 2015.
