I was born in Bucharest, Romania, where I began my artistic path. I have been painting and drawing from a young age and my earliest memories relate to having a pencil in my hand. Sometimes, my dancing fairies and heroes would go wandering on the walls of my house or inside my parents’ books.
I always had a dual inclination: I loved liberal arts, such as painting and literature, but I also enjoyed hard sciences like algebra, chemistry or geometry. While in school, I won a few prizes in national literature competitions. Yet my anchor has always been my studio, with my brushes, pencils and colors.
I went on to study fine arts at the National University of Arts “UNARTE” in Bucharest and later on I pursued pharmacy, at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Carol Davila” in Bucharest. I consider myself a multidisciplinary, all-rounded character.
I currently live and work on the beautiful seacoast of New Hampshire, USA.
