Bucharest based illustrator, painter and graphic designer. I began nurturing a passion for illustration at an early age, in my grandfather`s blacksmith forge, a place that influenced my artistic endeavours and my future interest in the fantasy/mythology universe. I am mostly self-taught since I started to study urban planning and worked on various urban planning projects in Romania and abroad. During this time, I kept close ties with illustration, painting and graphic design on freelance projects, experimenting with all kind of mediums and techniques, both traditional and digital. I am also a member of the Zazen/Kraftmark collective. Also, you can visit my online shop for prints and other goodies society6.com/cristinastefan :)
