My works are stories nested within organized chaos.
The images I create are dense, filled with energy, and employ a frenzy of bold colors and unconventional mixture of shapes.
In the text I incorporate I capture human feelings or absurdities of our daily life; the words transmit a strong message or have an ironic intent.
The inspiration for the texts and messages comes from my direct engagement with the world.
In my paintings, I am especially interested in associating disjointed ideas; I constantly experiment and seek to combine disparate influences.
I was born in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania. I moved to the US in 2005, where I currently live, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Trained in Interior Design, I did my first painting at the beginning of 2013 because I could not find a piece I imagined for a space in my new home.
I continued painting—for the immediate creative flexibility and the spontaneous visual gestures it offered and which I was looking for, and because of the need to create more permanent things—until I became a full-time visual artist.
