This painting is based on a photograph I took while visiting Castle St Angelo in Rome. We sat at this table, had a pizza and enjoyed an amazing view of St Peters Basilica right outside the window. As we left this bird flew on the table and I was lucky enough to get him in the photo.

My passion for art began when I was very young. Like most children I was given a pencil and a paper to draw on. However, I never put the pencil down. Often, were times I got in trouble in school for drawing instead of listening to the teacher. Despite the setbacks, my passion for drawing grew and expanded into painting as well. When it was time for me to go to university to study my parents told me to do something practical. I told them I wanted to do something that I was passionate about. And that’s what I did. I received my bachelor’s degree in art from the University of Bucharest. Before moving to the Unites States, I taught art in both private and public school in Romania. I truly believe that art makes the world a better place, and with every painting, drawing, or art video that I make it is my attempt to make the world a little better.
