"In her memoir, artist Linda Dayan Frimer traces the layered histories of art and the artists of each era alongside her family’s journey from Eastern Europe to the wilderness of western Canada. Born in Wells, and later spending her childhood in nearby Prince George, Frimer’s development as an artist was intimately impacted by her upbringing in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. It was here that Frimer developed a deep empathy and reverence for the First Nations of Canada, who were on this land thousands of years before European colonization. It was also here that Frimer first realized that nature and culture rose inseparable in creation, and that she had a responsibility to both.

Throughout her book, Frimer strives to break down barriers between varying perspectives, while guiding the reader through a series of artistic exercises designed to cultivate imagination and to foster cultural and environmental healing through creativity. Accompanied by her acclaimed artwork, close examination of art history and theory, and exploration of Jewish spirituality, Frimer explores the power of colour, the symbols that help to give life meaning, and the importance of creativity in not only protecting, but ennobling existence. Luminous aims to inspire each of us to become the artist of our own story."
