Creation, Inspiration, Love

24 December 2016

What can I say, I love flowers! my daily search for inspiration always seem to lead me towards natural, organic shapes and colors. I escape the city as often as I can to wander through woods and to climb cliffs, I love holidays in the county side, I still collect leafs in autumn, and brunches […]

My Yellow Week

20 December 2016

My students keep asking me about the meaning of colours, in terms of translating feelings and emotions; and every time I avoid answering, because I know it will only be a formal paragraph that they want to hear and write down, to remember later.

Feelings and Moods at the Drawing Table

19 December 2016

I keep saying, and being proud while doing it, that I am the kind of artist that reaches the best of the creative process when happy.

why blogging?

because the story is so much more than the final version of it. My work is much more than that chair that you (hopefully) love. My happiness, my inspiration, my travels, food, friends, wanders and wonders – you name it – these are all parts of what makes me be the creator of that same […]

Our first event in Brasov is hosted by Trattorian Artisan Food. We talk about being unique, about that one mix and match of the right ingredients for the perfect dish, or chair, or mood. We show off with the fact that smart design always seems tailor made and comes with a sense of humor, a […]

Logo or Coat of Arms?

8 November 2016

I don`t do logos. But I had to do mine, as a coat of arms describing myself as an artist in short, concise and solid notions that catch the essence of my work. I guess it came as a response to all those questions that travel through my brain while I work; basically it`s the […]
