I'm Ilinca, a Romanian illustrator based in London. I'm self-taught in my craft and enjoy working in a naive style, inspired by snapshots of my life and experiences – living in London, botanics and gardening, memories of my upbringing in Romania. Details fade away in vivid colours, giving way to cheerfulness and curiosity.
I'm invested in learning about textile designs and surface patterns – a niche inspired by my mother's seamstress skills and the old days when I spent hours digging in thrift stores, looking for unique pieces and designs.
You can find me on Instagram posting my process and talking about my sewing experiments, trying out gouache and building on my multidisciplinary practice. ✌️
