I am a professional sculptor and university lecturer living and working in Bucharest, Romania.

I was born in Cluj-Napoca in 1967. In 1987, I received my diploma in the Fine Arts School and started my studies at the University of Fine Arts in 1989. In 1992, I went to Bucharest in order to build my career as a stage and film director.In 1993, after a spontaneous decision, I moved to the Sculpture department of the National University of Art in Bucharest where I got my BA degree in 1997.
Since 1998, I am teaching as lecturer at the Sculpture Department. In 2008 I received a PHD in visual arts with the thesis The plastic aspects of Gnosticism in postmodern vision.
Since 2014 I am initiating and coordination at The National University of Arts from Bucharest a workshop called Time based arts@ Time Factor(y). I am interested in conceptual sculpture, where the idea is the main stream but expressed with the extended use of traditional sculptural techniques. I have a more then 20 year experience in bronze casting having good knowledge both in wax losing and ceramic shell casting. My favorite media is stone and terracotta.
