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: Autumn breeze
On a beautiful afternoon my wife and I were walking around the neighborhood when I got distracted photographing some trees, then after looking around I suddenly discovered where she was seating on the grass by the pond and the cold breeze dancing with the leaves around her. It was so simple yet beautiful and elegant image.

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

Title or Location: The Crow and the Moon Pool
In this piece, a solitary crow perches elegantly on the edge of a moonlit pool, its feathers glistening with an ethereal sheen. The scene is set within the hauntingly beautiful ruins of an ancient courtyard, where ivy-clad arches and weathered stone walls whisper tales of forgotten times. The moon, full and luminous, casts a silvery glow across the serene water, creating an almost magical reflection that seems to merge the boundaries between reality and fantasy. Flickering torches line the passa
