Ioana was born in Resita in a mountain city of the south west of Romania.
Having graduated from Caragiale Academy of Theatrical Arts & Cinematography in 2011 Ioana knew that her love lied in acting while painting was pushing her on a voyage of travel and discovery.
Spending 6 years in Rome, Barcelona and the Baleares, Ioana drew, painted and created digital images, anything she could use to explore her thoughts.
She is now based in London where she is creating and experimenting with great complexity, intriguing the mind and reflecting feelings.
Her effortless ability to create depth in expressing pain and happiness triggers self-reflection into the mix and confusion of feelings.
'I am a self taught artist.
I am continuously exploring with different tools and mediums. Mainly my works are done in acrylic on canvas and paper. Sometimes I do collage and I constantly draw. I have an interest in people and characters; most of my time I paint from my imagination and memory- I am driven by feelings more than observation.-
