We asked her how did she get into yoga
"I started practicing yoga two years ago during a turbulent time of my life when I came across ads for some free yoga lessons in the park. Ever since I have been attending weekly classes at a local yoga studio but even when I am not able to attend them, I practice at home by following YouTube videos.
Yoga is something that calms me when my mind is racing and nothing else seems to help. It is a moment of freedom from the daily burdens. It is a vacation of the mind that is easily accessible and always there for me"
"I grew up with a lot of flowers and plants around me and I always enjoyed spending time in nature. Plants represent the source of life and vitality. This same lifegiving source can also be reached by practicing yoga and, these designs represent this energy and the synergy of people, plants and nature.
I strive to create art that has a powerful meaning behind it. It is not just about the aesthetics and designs, but also the energetic impact they have on the viewer. It needs to encompass a greater sense of meaning and connection with everything that unites us as human beings. My philosophy of design is based on the necessity of transmitting and transcending the visual senses to reach deep within the unconscious mind."
"My experience as an artist began since I can remember. I was a little girl and always drawing on any possible surface. In my teens, growing up in Spain, I started attending a high school for the Arts. I then returned to my birthplace in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, to attend the nationally prestigious University of Art and Design of Cluj-Napoca. There I started forming my eye for fashion design, completing both my bachelor's degree and master´s degree in the process.
Upon the completion of my bachelor´s degree, my collection Doppelganger which is featured in my portfolio was presented at the annual UAD Gala, winning the ¨Best Designer 2015¨prize. Due to this accomplishment, I was given the opportunity to attend Paris Fashion Week. This provided me with the chance to intern at Juanma by El Cuco, a little autochthon fashion house from Barcelona, and Agatha Ruiz De La Prada, in Madrid. There I was able to develop my skills and artistic direction.
I then returned back to Romania and began working as a print designer for ISARA, a local babywearing brand. A year or so ago I began my career as a freelancer and have been doing it ever since as it fits my personality and provides me with the creative freedom that every artist craves."
