It's time to showcase the art of a very talented artist and author. Today I am delighted to bring you the paintings of Luna Walter.
Luna's work is detailed and exciting. It is an honor to present it here on the Jimmy Broccoli page!
Luna in her own words:
Luna Walter was born in the English Countryside and still lives in Worcestershire. She is very dyslexic and never meant to write a book. In fact, this book ("What Would God Think?") started its life as several thousand drawings and a few dozen pottery figures. Turning it into words has taken years. Luna works as a commercial artist and a tutor; teaching mostly students with learning difficulties, special educational needs, brain injuries and mental health issues. She appeared in a BBC, Panorama program back in the 1970’s, as a perfect example of a child struggling with dyslexia and has found reading and writing a challenge all her life. This story is based on a disturbing dream that the writer had whilst in a very unhappy marriage, it is a fantasy and bears no reference to any real-life circumstances. Writing this book has been a great achievement for Luna, and the somewhat quirky writing style may take some getting used to. However, this book is a testimony to the fact that having a difficulty in life is not a reason to give up, but more a reason to not give up and to keep on trying.
