I was born in Ciupa, Romania, a small city 100 miles north of Bucharest, on December 14, 1952. When I was 13, a friend and I painted a copy of "The Death of 10,000 Thebans" or "St. Morris" by El Greco. Then I studied art in Bucharest.

In Los Angeles, I studied art again at Otis/Parsons and eventually I graduated from Syracuse University with a MA in illustration. I studied illustration because I considered "fine art" not "fine" anymore for me. I feel that modern art does not help a human to become a better human being. On the contrary, it creates confusion and a dangerous, abstract, artificial way to understand reality, excluding the essential term of beauty from art.

So I studied the old masters to understand their way of expressing their feelings, to learn their language of art and their understanding of beauty.

I have taken part in over 60 art shows and festivals in the United States, Europe, and Asia. The next period of my life will be more focused on my profession as an artist. It is my duty, because it was always within me and will be there until the last moment of my life.
