Hello and thank you for visiting my portfolio.
I am Iulia Cristina, a native of Romania. At a young age my family and I fled Communism and moved to Geneva/Switzerland, helped by one of my uncles to settle there. I lived there for almost 5 years where I have met Dan, a very talented Romanian musician. Drawn together by similar tastes in music and art, we fell in love. He 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 my mind’s mysteries, expressing my emotions spontaneously by mixing different mediums: watercolors, acrylics and also making collages using organic or synthetic materials. For some of my artwork after scanning 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.
Please contact me if you like to purchase my original artwork.
I am also looking for collaborators from the fields of industrial design, textile design, surfboards design, etc.
