Calina also earned her Masters of Education at the University of California at Santa Cruz after which, she became a high school English teacher. A head injury in 2015 brought her back to her true passion, painting.
In 2016 Calina began painting again, creating drawings and oil paintings, in her studio and en plein air. Calina paints the beauty and drama of weather, light, and atmosphere. She is inspired by the magnificence of nature and expresses her love of it in her work. Travel affords her the opportunity to experience different cultures and landscapes, adding depth, complexity and freshness to her paintings. Calina loves being outside, connected to nature and all of its beauty as she captures the essence of her surroundings.
