I believe I was born with an artistic sense, a refined taste for beauty and an infinite pleasure to create. I breathe and I live for art, I feel it with every cell of my body and through my art I connect to a different dimension that is healing, meaningful and fulfilling.
I am a Romanian-born artist; I have a master degree in business and management and I worked in Cluj Napoca, Romania, in the banking sector for more than 10 years. During this time, I could fulfill my desire to paint only during the spare time I had on weekends.
For me, words and images have always been connected when it comes to creativity.
I’ve been feeling attracted to painting since I was a little girl and my art has always been about offering a positive, hopeful message in contrast to my childhood time when the communist regime allowed for little color and free artistic expression.
Work / Education
In 2008 I decided to turn my lifelong aspiration for artistic expression into a career. I also developed an interest in psychology, spirituality, meditation and personal development, all these subjects deeply influencing me as a human being and as an artist. Along the way I was inspired by thinkers such as Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Neale Donald Walsh, Deepak Chopra. Furthermore, I started to learn about angel therapy from Doreen Virtue.
I am a self-taught artist and I have been greatly encouraged and inspired by artistic influences all my life. I love travelling and taking long walks in the nature, as nature is the mother of us all, a perfect masterpiece of beauty.
The beautiful things I’ve experienced during my travels, especially from Mexico and Italy – sights, colours, shapes, sounds and flavours – have been an inspiration for my artistic work. Most of my paintings convey a positive message that can HEAL fears and bring hope and happiness in your life, COLOR your everyday life and CAPTURE a part of your heart.
Every single piece is unique and reveals insights into my inner states of joy, hope and happiness.
The art that I create is meant to heal, because I know how important it is for us to be surrounded by colourful pieces that come with positive messages of harmony, beauty and love.
Some of my paintings are held in private collections in Bulgaria, Canada, Colombia, Estonia, Germany, Israel, Italy, Norway, Poland, Romania, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK, USA.
