The author says, “There are still places to see and get inspiration. I have been close to nature and its wonders all of my breathing days. But I have always tried to do my work with places that don’t really exist. For me it is wonderful to create a fantasy in whatever medium I am working in. It is very difficult at times to make sure the mind is turned off. On some works I have to turn it back on for details to ensure that the concept leaves nothing to the imagination. My poetry, prose, short stories, sketches and odes are an exception to this self-made rule. To all the wonderful people in this world, I say come travel with me. The gentle works in this book are my view from the moon for you to enjoy.”
Multi-gifted artist, architect, and writer Ted C. Luna was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He learned fine carpentry, remodeling and building additions from his father and took an interest in drafting from an early age. Luna graduated with a Fine Arts Degree in 1965 from the University of New Mexico and a degree in Architecture in 1966. Later he worked with Antoine Predock for four years, and practiced in Santa Fe. He established several firms and for a three year period, he partnered with Alfred Ross. In the late 1980s, he spent about six years in cities such as Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona and La Jolla and San Diego, California, working on large multi-story casino projects. Architectural historian Bainbridge Bunting strongly influenced Luna’s interest in architectural history, and his affinity for the regional vernacular of New Mexico architecture is reflected in his professional styles. However, he often deviated from strict traditional design, maintaining a modern approach, even toward the Spanish Pueblo Revival Style of New Mexico. Ted Luna was the architect for the award winning Vietnam Veteran’s National Memorial, located in Angel Fire, New Mexico.
