Biography

 

Luminita was born in Transylvania, Romania, where she spent the first 3 years of her life learning to draw. She later continued her              education by studying architecture at the University in Bucharest.  She also experimented with different art forms: drawing,                        painting,  watercolor, sculpture, photography.

With a diploma in Architecture, and a life changing relocation to Canada to get away from a beautiful but freedom deprived                country, she worked  hard at developing a home design business and raising a son. There was little or no time for art. 

Not surprisingly, art did not wish to be forgotten and began to reclaim little by little its rightful place in Luminita’s life. 

Soon Luminita began selling her work, while planning how to make more time for art.  Art is no longer a hobby, but a full time,

red-hot passion, to be nourished and revered.  Now she concentrates on working with gallery owners towards revealing to the                  public at large the richness and variety of her art. 

She describes her style as “luminism”!

In Romanian, Luminita means “little light” so, no surprisingly IT’S ALL ABOUT THE LIGHT!

       PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

 

 

Showing in at least 4 solo shows per year, (before Covid 19), some in dedicated galleries like

      Atrium Gallery at Centerpointe in 2018, 2012, 2011, Foyer Gallery and Rothwell Gallery.

      Also successful solo shows are taking place in restaurants and cafes, sometimes invited many years in a row at the same            place, like in Bluebird Coffee, Green Door Restaurant, the Table Restaurant, Biagio’s, etc.

      2020 was to be the best year, with a solo show every month, and some months, in the

      summer, even 3 shows at the same time.

I describes my style as “luminism”!  In Romanian, Luminita means “little light” so, no surprisingly IT’S ALL ABOUT THE LIGHT!

 

Collections in Europe, USA, Australia, New Zeeland and Canada.

 

Illustrations for “Bee Paradise, “a poetry book published in Canada, and other poetry books published in Australia, Romania and USA.

 

The Heart Institute at the Civic Hospital had a competition for ceiling tiles to be painted for 30 rooms, for patients to see a peaceful scene on the ceiling while they are being treated.  I was extremely excited and proud to win one of them, paint it and show it.
