"A painting requires a little mystery, some vagueness, and some fantasy." Edgar Degas
For me, art has been a passion since a very young age. I like the freedom to work with colors, imagine, seek, and connect with nature.
My inspiration comes from the color and the depth of a forest or the fragility and grace of flowers.
Traveling around the world has allowed me to ignite my passion for photography. Slowly, my thinking and creativity process grew up. I started to insert in my acrylic or cold wax/oil paintings small areas cut from my photographs. It became an exciting process because any detail of my surroundings could be a source of inspiration. A decayed wall of a building, the natural design or shape of a gemstone or granite piece, or mushroom growth on a trunk tree, photos taken sometimes in the middle of nowhere, are present in my floral, forest fantasies or landscapes.
In my current practice, I use a variety of materials, molding paste, acrylic, oil, cold wax, Japanese paper, prints of my pictures or artworks, and different textiles. I adore to build images and lavish layers, depth and texture.
My artworks are a voyage in search of a flourishing and "green" life, uplifting and warming up the human soul.It explores concepts of vertically, unity, fragility, strength, rooting.
I have a passion for joy and color, truly blessed to share my work with you.
My paintings are privately owned in Canada ( Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, New Foundland ), US, and Romania.
