I was born on February 10, 1986 in Rupea, near Brasov, Romania. I grew up in a wonderful family, both me and my younger sister being brought up with a culture of beauty and simplicity, characteristic of traditional life in the countryside. Growing up at the confluence of Romanian, German and Hungarian crafts and folklore was definitely the foundation of my love and natural inclination to arts. I first started painting when I was 10 years old, thanks to Virgil Barsan, an old painter who used to spend the summers in my childhood village and who took the time to paint with me every afternoon in his garden. I went on to study Mathematics and Informatics, Political Science and History but I always knew that following the academic path was not what I wanted to do. Through it all, I remained hopelessly in love with colors, shapes and expressing what is happening inside myself in creative and mysterious ways. In 2012, I started participating in different types of art courses around the world: Brugge in 2012 and Kortrijk (Belgium) in 2013. I have recently completed courses at Parsons School of Design, Oxford University, and the Interior Design Institute of San Francisco, and am currently taking courses at The Art Student League of New York. My first exhibition took place in Brasov at art gallery Ora0, which continues to represent my art. My daughter Ana is now two year old, and I as soon as I can, I intend to initiate her into the amazing world of painting as well.
