Deep down each of us, I believe that we all have a hidden talent, a beautiful gift, our own bit of genius, a sleeping giant within us is waiting to be waken up. And if you're still looking for it, don't stop. It might just be right there waiting to be tapped.
If you want to make a change in your life and don't know where to start, why don't you try to learn something new? It may board your view and understanding of the subjects which you've always been curious about, and help you finding out your interests in profound knowledge.
What's more wonderful than waking up everyday and be able to do what you love and helping others at the same time?
Hi, I'm Luna Nguyen, a self-taught artist, art teacher and cooking instructor. I'm in love with what I do, and that included creating handmade art and crafts, cooking and writing. I'm passionate about teaching, sharing the creativity knowledge and my cooking experience which I've learned and developed over time.
Six years ago, I went through a big depression, it was when I asked myself many questions: What can I do to make my life better? What do I like to do, even without being paid? What am I good at? And from asking the right questions, I found the right answers. I remember as a kid, I always spent lots of time drawing, painting, and writing. That also was the moment I started to paint again.
Soon after, most of my paintings were exhibited and sold in many different art galleries and exhibitions, from Asia to the Middle East, and further to Europe, as well as the USA.
Since 2017, I've been teaching Silk painting, Fabric painting, Batik Art and other art classes included Embroidery and Silver-clay art and many Vietnamese traditional cooking dishes - in person, and online via Zoom or Skype - from individuals to all different size of groups internationally. I teach in company events, school art departments, art centers, team buildings for corporations. Some of my clients are included Chanel, Gulf Business Training Center, Online Training Platform Skilldeer, Art Universities, and other Art and Cooking centers in The Netherlands, Sweden, and now giving my online workshops globally.
My life has changed forever, from being depressed to being the best version of myself, doing what I love. My Art journey allowed me to inspire and help my students in learning the knowledge that they've always wanted to learn, the painting outcomes that they want to achieve, a new painting technique or cooking skill that they didn't see anywhere else, and then finally is to find the purpose and courage to actually start doing it whether having a new hobby or starting a new business.
I've empowered hundreds of participants to find their new painting techniques, to improve their cooking skills, to create their handmade home decor items, to be able to create their own fashion line, to make their own collection of silk scarves, or to bring their fabric paintings to the next level with handmade embroidery and a new way of a contemporary approach.
Moreover, what ultimately makes me truly happy is when people discovering their hidden talent, finding their passion when they see the great creativeness and the ability to accelerate which they didn't know are existed - within themselves - always.
Because of that motivation and the love for people, in the last six years I've been consistently learning and developing my knowledge and dedicated myself to do just that: Learn, teach, help, and inspire.
If you are excited and ready to learn a new painting skill, specific in silk, cotton, and other fabrics painting, or to learn and cook authentic Vietnamese food, to awaken the giant within you through the beautiful way with Art, to be the best version of yourself and to do what you love, I am ready to help!
Here are some of my student's reviews:
"Luna made the silk painting classes very enjoyable and fun. The lessons were taught in good detail and I have learned a lot of new techniques: how to apply paints, how to add many different textures. I also learned how to use stencils, how to make different color tones, how to apply colors to my designs. She was very helpful and clear. She helped and showed me how to improve my art and make it interesting. At first, I booked only one class to try out and ended up booking eight classes in total. I had a great time. The instructor is very helpful and very good. My favorite teacher." - Mamta.
