Episode 214: Today I talk to artist, Luna Smith…all the way in Scotland. She has her own gallery, but she is also in the Saatchi gallery. I met her after I used one of her pieces as one of my Coup de Coeurs. She reached out to me and I knew I had to have her on the show. She tells me the inspiration behind her vivid, colorful paintings. Also, she can SEE music…literally.
