Artist Statement:


"Through my creations, I explore the beauty of everyday life, its moments, and its stories.

I strive to connect the viewer to the subject and to create an invitation to pause and reflect. The beauty of a landscape and the evanescence of a fleeting moment or emotion are some of the sources of my inspiration, challenging me to capture them for eternity." - Ioana
