Watercolors and drawings, surprising in their elegance and simplicity, the artist’s works have a specific dynamics, best described by the author herself:
“I would like the lines I trace on a white background to get outside the space of the painting, wander through the room, move up the walls. I would like people to see them getting longer, springing out of the painting, dancing through the room.”
”What I look for is a pure, abstract, non-objective drawing, without any relation to time and space. A drawing which lives by itself, an ideal, transcending drawing, able to establish the connection between here and there.”
The artist has participated in multiple group and solo exhibitions and her works are part of private collections from Romania and other countries as well as from state collections: Art Museums in Galați, Tulcea, Târgu Mureș, The Palace of Parliament, Palace of the National Military Circle.
