My name is Hermina, I am both an artist and a graphic artist. I started painting as a child and have continued to paint without stopping ever since!
I love to paint pet portraits, flowers and landscapes.
I use different mediums and techniques:
- Watercolour on paper – for small paintings, greeting cards and wedding invitations.
- Acrylic and oil colours for paintings on canvas.
- Tempera and acrylic for painting on wood for my handmade jewellery, Christmas decorations and jewellery boxes.
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to study art painting for two years with the well-known Romanian contemporary artist, Lucian Cioata.
For 15 years I had a successful career as a graphic artist for Abadjian Collection, where I learnt the beautiful art of designing the patterns for Abadjian’s hand-knotted carpets. I combined classical styles with the original approach of Berdj Abadjian, a legendary expert and manufacturer of antique carpets.
Finishing this beautiful experience in 2008, I started my own self-employed art business focusing on paintings, handmade invitations and greeting cards.
Since March 2013, I have continued this work in the UK, where I started paintedcards.co.uk , originally concentrating on wedding invitations and greeting cards.
Using my previous experience as a graphic artist, I combine my knowledge of digital design and print with my artistic skills to create bespoke wedding invitations for my many happy clients:
Now with Herminart.uk I feel I’m expanding in an exciting new direction, building on my successful work with my paintings, cards and invitatios. I’m creative in many ways and my clients appreciate my artistic work.
