I created Papertint as a means to express my experiences and emotions from the places I’ve travelled to or lived in. My art is about light, colour, and positivity, laid out through energetic brush strokes on paper and canvas.

I was brought up in Romania, lived extensively in Finland, and since last year have been travelling to different locations around the world with the purpose of staying at least a few months at a time in each place.  These experiences have given me the unique opportunity to create numerous pieces of vibrant colours, inspired from my emotional response to each place. With each new artwork, I intend to express a feeling of positivity. 

My journey has taken me from Finland to New York, and then to Brazil, where I started a challenge called “100 Days of Papertint”, creating a painting a day for 100 days and sending them to people around the world. The challenge has been completed in Portugal, and thanks to the wonderful feedback I got from the winners, I decided to make a book. I look forward to inspire others to explore their creativity in the same way.
