My name is Oana (pronounced ‘Wanna”, but you won’t offend me if you pronounce it a different way) and I am a Romanian born freelance graphic artist, wife and mother currently living in the Midwest, United States.
I am spending my time juggling between two kindred spirited kiddos, working on projects and everything in between. Although watercolors are my favorite media to work with, I also use gouache, acrylic inks, collage, linocut and screen printing.
My watercolor and mixed media paintings are inspired by my love for nature, woodland creatures, botanicals and everyday life, as well as folk art and childhood nostalgia.
Before moving to the States, I graduated the National University of Arts in Bucharest, Romania with a Master’s Degree in Graphic Design and Visual Communication. Prior to becoming a freelancer, I have worked in advertising agencies doing design work for various clients such as Coca-Cola.
