I am Antonia. I was born in Romania and lived there for the biggest part of my life. As of right now, I am established in South Africa.
My inclination towards art happened since a very young age. My mother used to draw beautifully and I was so taken with it from the first moment I saw it happen. I was often asking her to draw for me; when she would, I would absorb it all. Growing up, art as a future career wasn't on the table, especially when I was advised against it. I still enjoyed drawing, painting and all sorts of crafts.
Middle school was interesting. My music teacher was a wonderful person and would often talk to me about art and the potential he saw in me. Naturally, I would push that idea aside. One day he asked me to draw a piece for him and of course, I did, only to later find out I won 1st place in an art contest as he handed me the diploma. He played a big role in me choosing the art path.
In the last year of middle school a new art teacher has been introduced to the class. He was the second person to influence my decision to enroll into an art high school. And so he took my hand and led me to the art school next door, where I never thought I’d set foot. I spent my summer vacation going to the school’s atelier and after that time, I knew it was what I wanted to pursue.
I was very lucky to have amazing professors or “art parents” as I call them nowadays. Each and every one of them were wonderful people and would always give it all to their students.
Of course, after that experience I wanted to continue studying art in University and did so, but unfortunately it turned out to be quite underwhelming. After that chapter was closed, I took the longest break from creating. A break so long that I thought I’d never be able to get back into it. But here I am! Back on track and working towards making this dream of mine tangible.
I’m very thankful for all the people I have met and for all the experiences that made me who I am. These days I am part of a wonderful, creative family that inspires me each day.
Many thanks to you for reading and taking the time to check out my web page!
