Manuela Moldovan

I am a self-taught artist and enjoy challenges, loving to discover.
As a women, I have been attracted by jewellery and one day, I started creating necklaces.
During this journey, I discovered the effect of energy generated by gemstones and got excited about designing any kind of jewellery.
I adore and value the imperfections of a natural material that brings charm and beauty to any piece.
I love creating unique items, infused with positive energy, true love, wearable anytime of the day, making people special, every second of their lives.

I am also a fine artist painter.
Over the years, I became fascinated by oil paint and explored it on my own, working with colors and capturing my surroundings' charm and splendor.
I find myself deeply connected; the nature is very dynamic and profound, with incredible energy and vibration.
As a self-taught artist, I love to learn new techniques, experiment with, and discover what is appealing to me.
I fell in love with mixed media due to the effects on depth, texture, volume, dimensions.
Organic materials are my favorites and incorporate them into my paintings.
Lately, I started experimenting collage using alcohol ink, Japanese paper, prints of my pictures or artworks, loving to build images, rich layers.
I love capturing the mystery of any corner of our planet or imagine a beautiful and vibrant world.

My favorite theme has always been flowers and trees, still lives and landscapes. However, over the years, I progressed from the traditional use of paint to abstract, semi-abstract impressionism approach with a primary focus on joyful colors and philosophic concepts as "vertically", "trinity", "unity", "essence of life".

My vision is to bring the warmth, joy, and richness that nature instills into people's hearts.
After applying 2-3 coats of acrylic paint on canvas, I start my work adding more layers of cold wax/oil paint, charcoal to define the idea. Soon, inspiration, reflection takes over, as well as adding, subtracting, generating other partial layers.

I am member of Markham Group of Artists, Ontario, ArtWorks Oakville Association and Canadian Society of Artists, associate member.
