About Me

I was born with the paint brush in my hand. I was a priviledged artist to have gotten a chance to study realistic art for years with some of the best mentors like Maestro Michael John Angel, Maestro Cesar Santos and Maestro Corneliu Vasilescu and a dear teacher from university, Mihaela Ilinca. Last year I was challenged by a dear friend to create the scenery for a massive event which caused me to study Jackson Pollock work for weeks, resulting in me gaining knowledge in the abstraction synthesis . Meanwhile, I started to see my art like a therapy and as a healing and blessing for my soul. My art is not limited to the artworks I create, but also in the reactions which my form of expression creates. My ideas are flipped upside down when I realise that my art is seen with different interpretations and creates different moods and feelings for everyone. My intentions though my paintings are to heal and to radiate positive vibes. I dream my compositions in black and white, but I love to express my dreams colourfully. All of my feelings and happiness which I dedicate to paint can be reflected in all the positive feedback that I receive from people that empathise with my artworks. I use imagination that allows me to play with the vibrant energy of the lights and colours, so maybe that’s how people from all over the world get into my work. To be honest, sometimes I’m a little bit sad because a picture that represents my artworks can’t really reproduce that I play with magic in my paintings, and often I play with gold. “I’m fascinated, some of your art seems to be alive” one of my dear collector said in a visit at my art studio. I must admit I am grateful for this because risking to synthesize all my realistic art knowledges into this abstract moody art brought that shine in my soul I was looking for all along. years
