Welcome to my Artweb gallery.
It tells, in brief, the story of my creative journey as a self taught intuitive artist.
I started painting in Bucharest, Romania in late 2003. I needed desperately to calm my traumatised mind. It has since become a beautiful friendship with my brushes, my paints, my canvasses, my paper and the so many bits and pieces that find their way into my painted stories. Art changed my life - hugely for the better.
The two small paintings on this page are where it really all began for me, in England, in 2004. "My image of England" and "A sailing boat" were among my very first paintings. I apologise right now for the quality of the enlarged images but the paintings are important to me as they were my first flags in the creative sand so to speak.
Having grown up under a brutal communist regime (my story is here), where there were rules for everything and everything around me was grey, art released in me my strong desire to break free, to take pleasure from not conforming, to think and act for myself - and in particular to bring the vivid colours of this wonderful planet to the walls of my home.
I hope you like the selection of paintings that I have chosen for this small gallery - double click on images to see enlargements. And please get in touch.
