I started out as a kid making birthday cards and end-of-the-year cards for all my classmates.
Then I studied drawing and painting for 5 years at a technical art school and 5 more years of design, sculpture, sketching, illustration and animation at University. I also have a Masters in Wedding and Event Planning (so I can also offer some free advice).
I love creating and crafting, especially because it allows me to arrange my timetable around my son’s school schedule and spend more time with him.
My inspiration comes from rustic and nostalgic style.
Old things have a special charm: they have a history and they tell a story. Things like the rusty pots in my Grandma’s kitchen, the peeling paint on her window frames, the smudged colors of her carpets. Things that, like grandma, were old, but dear.
I know I’m not the only one who feels that way. We, city people, have an unquenchable nostalgy for the country life and the peace and quiet it represents. A life of traditions, silence, nature… family.
I want to know your story and be a part of your happy day
My work has been featured on TV, radio, newspapers and several art exhibits in Romania, Spain, China, Venezuela, Italy and Canada. In 2021 I won the Prestige Awards for "Stationery Store of the Year". and in 2022 the award for "Handmade Stationery Retailer of the Year"
