The reason I paint is because I want individuals to look at my work and remember that, while we all live very busy lives, we might forget to look around us and be mesmerized by all the beauty this world has to offer. That is why I go out on walks and take photos of the beauty I see, then I bring the photos home and paint them. I try to capture and excentuate what I think is beautiful about the photo.
I was born and raised in Romania until the age of thirteen where I acquired my attraction towards art. I would spend hours drawing in my grandparents garden. Although my drawings didn't make much sense at the time I kept on trying. Then I moved to the United States where I attended highschool and was placed in paitning instead of a drawing class. My first words to the teacher were "I am better at drawing and I don't think I am going to do very well in this painting class". I then proceeded to get a second year of painting from the same teacher. After a break from painting I decided to take a painting class in college and now I am painting whenever I have some free time. I would say that I am closest to realism in terms of my artstyle.
