ARIA LUNA

Aria Luna has been drawing since she was two. The first drawing she ever did was of two octopi. Since then, she has amassed a body of work her parents can’t keep up with. She’s already gone through several artistic “periods” and is constantly exploring new media and styles.

She also loves singing (check out her Open Mic performance at Cazadero summer camp), playing the piano, and writing stories and comic books.

Aria Luna comes from a long bloodline of creativity: her mother is a writer, her grandmother is an artist, and her great-grandmother was also an artist. Her great-great-grandmother was a singer. Her grandfather is an architect. On her father’s side, she’s got more art flowing in, but also a love of math and engineering. That could be where her passion for Lego and negative numbers comes from.

When she’s not drawing, Aria loves to rollerblade, scooter, play Roblox (among various other games), and, to her parents’ unending consternation, stay up way past her bedtime. She’s also saved untold bees from swimming pools, and raised a bird from egg to flight.
