My artistic journey began when I was just a child. I had an innate love for various forms of art and design. I loved creating with anything I could get my hands on, which led to exploring different mediums and techniques that would spark my creativity. I collected greeting cards from family members that lived in other parts of the world, and I used to hand-paint cards for friends and family on special events. I continue to hold that passion in me today, and I love applying various analog and digital techniques to whatever inspires my work.

Since 2010 my work has grown slowly and organically from humble beginnings, progressing to collaborating with prestigious companies and developing my own stationery line. I gather inspiration from the endless beauty of the natural world, botanicals, fauna, nostalgia, and the timeless folk motifs of my Romanian roots.

Although I strive for elegance and timelessness in my designs, I enjoy pushing my creativity through composition, themes, and colors while adding a touch of sweetness. My hope is that our paper goods become small works of art for you to enjoy, treasure, and share with others.
