A lawyer by profession for over 20 years, Valentina remembers herself painting her colleague’s portrait from 5th grade, which turned out to be very good and she exhibited in school. She loves art and beauty that encompasses us. Her passion is painting portraits, abstracts and nudes. Valentina blends classic art with abstract elements. Her love for classic art reflects in her paintings. She gets inspiration from day to day life, emotions in people and her own emotions and thoughts.
Few years ago, she was reading Ernesto Sabato’s novel ‘’Between blood and writing’’ something that was about to change my destiny radically. ‘’A work of art does not only have a testimonial value but a cathartic power expressing the deepest emotions of the artist and of the people around him’’. I found myself in a similar state of being to what Greeks were calling ‘’metanoia’’ and in that unique moment of her mind and soul, she knew painting was her destiny.
This year she is scheduled for solo exhibits in Bucharest & London at the invitation of reputable art galleries.
