I was born in Romania (1948). I attended secondary art education for eight years (High School of Art, Liceul de Arte Plastice - Timisoara). Afterwards, I obtained a degree from the University of Veterinary Medicine and Zootechnical Engineering in Timisoara. I have retained my passion for art throughout my life ; after retirement I resumed painting full-time. My original artwork has been sold to private collectors around the world. I currently reside and work in Temecula, California.
