My story

Hello and & Welcome to my page.

Hello, I'm Ana-Maria

I am a 10th grade student in class B at Carmen Sylva Art College in Ploiesti, Prahova.

I have grown up drawing and painting, learning to express myself through colors and convey my emotions through my artwork. From a young age, I understood that there is a magical connection between humans and nature, and through art, I can express this connection.

I fondly remember being very young, and my grandmother on my mother’s side, who was a kindergarten teacher, was the first one to put colored pencils in my hand, alongside a coloring book. At home, next to her and with her guidance, I started to draw.

"My dream is to create unique compositions."

Then, everything unfolded step by step, my parents sensing my talent enrolled me in private drawing and painting classes, reaching the 2nd grade at the “Carmen Sylva” College of Art.

Here, from the 3rd grade and throughout the gymnasium, under the guidance of the painting teacher, Camelia Profirescu, I discovered myself and began to develop. Under the guidance of his lordship, I participated in exhibitions and competitions in the field of plastic arts.

I feel lucky that I was born with this talent and my dream is to create unique compositions.

In August 2011,

I had my first participation in an exhibition as part of the "Summer at the Museum" program organized by the Ploiesti Art Museum, and I remember being the youngest because I hadn't turned 5 yet.

My drawings appeared in children's magazines such as Winx in 2013 and Garfield in 2017, and my drawing in the Frozen movie magazine in 2014 won me first prize and a dress resembling Princess Elsa.

School...

I started school at the Sfantul Vasile school in Ploiesti, and in the 1st grade I won the 1st prize at the "Word and Color" Contest. This was my starting point, when I realized what I wanted to do "when I grow up". I also studied the piano at the Art College. The piano is my favorite instrument and for 3 years, it was my friend with whom I studied when I wasn't painting or drawing.

After admission to high school, from the 9th grade, under the guidance of specialized teachers, I continue to train becoming a future complex artist, with performances by participating in exhibitions and competitions.
