Hello and thank you for visiting my portfolio.
I am Cristina, a self taught Romanian artist. At the age of 14, my family and I fled Communism and moved to Geneva/Switzerland, helped by one of my uncles to settle there. I lived for almost 5 years where I have met Dan, a talented Romanian musician. Drawn together by similar tastes in music and art, we fell in love. Dan moved with his family to Toronto, Canada, shortly after his graduation; a year later, I joined him, we got married in London/Ontario and started to experiment with art and music. I enjoyed exploring the mind’s mysteries, expressing my emotions spontaneously by mixing mediums-watercolors, acrylics, making collages using organic or synthetic materials. For some of my artwork I used light digital manipulation.
In 1999 we have returned to native Romania for a visit and decide to settle in a mountain village where life is as it was two hundred years ago. Horse drawn carriages, wooden stoves, secular traditional customs and lots of fresh air.I also discovered painting with encaustics and I am still fascinated by this interesting medium.
My artwork is for sale in any format possible: greeting cards, posters, laminated prints, matted prints, framed prints, posters.
