Some of my first memories involved art and flowers. While my formal education involved buildings, my favorite school projects included collages and drawings.
Through my work in the design industry, I found nature even more valuable. I am so glad to have had the education I did, as it blended so many fields, but in a conversation I had with a colleague about our careers, I realized I wanted to pursue art!
I've been lucky to get to experience a lot of lovely things and hope to pass that forward through my work. My art career began with black and white sketches of my then hometown of San Francisco, and evolved to include more colors, layers and then subject matter. My focus is on floral portraits as I'm influenced by colors and textures of the beautiful parks and gardens that surround me. I currently live and work in Spokane, Washington and love creating original art.
Thank you and enjoy! Oana
