ARTISTS
Geanina Zaharia
I'm a Romanian artist who loves creation, imagination, colors, peace, and beauty in art. I have studied different techniques of arts throughout years such as illustrations, portraits, art compositions, traditional techniques (pencil, ink, painting), digital techniques (2D illustration, graphic design), and also 3d modeling and animation in Autodesk Maya for my art degree. Now I'm trying to find my own path and create something beautiful using all information I learned these years!
My focus is at the moment to graphite pencil portrait drawings and realism, this is what I did in the last two years and still working in this area.

Geanina Zaharia is available for private bookings

Title or Location: Italian Countryside
When I first got my condo I saw this space above my bathtub as the perfect place to create a mural. I wanted the tile in the mural and other elements to blend with the tile above the tub. I am also partial to arches so I wanted to incorporate that along with wisteria as purple is my favorite color. I wanted to create a fantasy country scene that I could enjoy for many years. This mural was painted in 2008. I also painted an arched palladium window above the door and have arched mirrors above the

The Grape Hyacinth is the latest in a series of digital paintings celebrating the beginning of Spring! The Grape Hyacinth is considered a weed by some, but this artist considers it a small thing of joy. Bring out the sun, the warmer weather, and some peaceful afternoons in the garden.
