My name is Andreea Bianca Grigore.
I was born in Romania, a beautiful country in the East Europe.
My interest towards art begin in my early ages. At that time I used to draw and paint, later switching to photography. In the late 2005, I discovered Photoshop, the tool which
combined photography and drawing and opened a new door for me.It was my motivation to learn how to use Photoshop and today I'm proud to say that I'm a self taught artist.I kept improving my skills trying almost every kind of art, from fantasy to conceptual and from surreal to dark and different media types like 3D, digital painting, etc. I decided to stick on the fantasy and dark side. I find it easier to express my feelings with fantasy elements. I do not like realistic photomanipulation, especially because I see art as a gate to another world, an imaginary one.
That's the reason why my name has the
"Imaginary" word in it. Because ordinary has limits. Imaginary doesn't.
I enjoy working and putting together different elements to help me portray the image I have in my head and showcase it to the world.
I joined deviantART in 2005, the largest art community.
It was the place in which I grew and develop as an artist, thanks to the feedback of
everyone there. I got to meet and later work with different artists which I admire, and from which I also got to learn different things.
I decided to step up and start using art to help less talented people to portray their own imaginary worlds, and have something of their own. Something they can escape to.
Something imaginary, they can relate to, when ordinary gets too limited.
