My stories in writing have so far been published in independent magazines such as Decat o Revista (http://www.decatorevista.ro/arhiva-revistei/dor6/; http://www.decatorevista.ro/eu-nu-sunt-fricile-mele-dor-8/ ), Tataia (http://www.tataia.net/ ), RomaniaOne (https://hora.romaniaone.org/ ), LaPunkt (http://www.lapunkt.ro/?s=oana+damian ), as well as on my own blog www.oanadamian.ro.

Born in 1980, in Romania, I work and live in Cluj-Napoca. My paintings reflect my life as well as my intelectual interests.

I started to paint in 2007, and now I study painting at the Cluj-Napoca University of Art and Design in my final year.

I have a son and a husband, a vegetable patch, a huge reserve of jams and fruit preserves, a dog who doesn’t know how to play (or be affectionate), and a cat who spends a lot of time at the neighbors’ houses (and doesn’t know how to be affectionate).
