About

Stories Without Words

My work revolves around exploring: from techniques and materials to ideas and the world around me. I enjoy the excitement and curiosity of seeing how my art develops over the years, influenced by experiences, travels and the unknown.

As an artist I get to have it both ways: working in solitude to explore my own ideas, and connecting with people to explore theirs. I enjoy the exchange between what I bring to my paintings and what the viewer brings from their own experience.

At one point in my life I lost contact with childhood. I’m not the only person who ever went through that. In my case, the home where I grew up in rural Romania burned, destroying everything: our clothes, our photos, my artwork, our books, toys, everything. When this happened to me, I wished that I could go back to a time when I looked at the world with no worries, nothing but curiosity and wonder.

A common part of my process is to change the way I look at things…to change my way of seeing the world. For example, I may try to see life as if through the eyes of a child. In this way, everything becomes fantastic.

As I take inspiration from life, I first see details. I choose elements that strike me and gradually build the story of the painting. I rarely make elaborate sketches. I leave the story open while I’m working, so it can build over time. As the painting matures, a new eye, a fresh perspective—conversations, feelings, experiences, images, or even seeing the painting in a different light—can bring meaning to the story.
I want people who see my paintings to see something new or different every time they look. I want to invite them to explore new possibilities.

    I was born in Romania. At the age of 13 I left my village to attend art school and university in Bucharest. Since then I have traveled, exploring. My visual narratives based on images and experiences explore ideas and invite you to explore your own.
