a bit about me:
Born in 1975 in the small eastern European country of Moldova. In 1998 I graduated from medical university becoming a doctor of medicine. After completing 3 years of medical residency, in 2002 I became a Dr. of Psychiatry. In 2011I earned my PHD in biology / human physiology. Working as a Psychiatrist and Scientific Researcher allowed me to explore my deep interest in the relationships between the body and mind.
My observation of the human experience and the relation to its environment permeates and inspires my artistry. I started to explore my creativity through acrylic painting but quickly switched to jewelry making as I felt that this was my true calling for a very long time. Using skills acquired as a Scientific Researcher and with the aid of online videos I explored jewelry making using wire wrapping techniques. In order to expand the ability to capture my inspirations, I adopted metal clay as my primary medium.
Through the integration of archetypal forms, my works aim to touch the viewers deepest personal feelings and self perceptions. This is done with the objective of invoking a juxtaposition of individuality within the context of unity. "For we live in a beautiful dream we call reality".
