Hello! I am a Romanian illustrator living in Germany. I've studied Landscape Design, but my passion was always painting and drawing. My work is focused on capturing the emotional, symbolical and narrative significance of ordinary objects. All of my illustrations reflect my love for food, nature, the power of plants and the feminine beauty. Each of them tells a story, reflects an idea or a concept. My figurative art illustrations are sprinkled with elements of fantasy, symbolism and surreal. I love working with traditional media, mainly with watercolor and occasionally with colored pencils and graphite.

This recipe started out as a simple smoothie illustration meant to be a personal protest against the decision of the US to withdraw from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. I thought I should go to the next step and make a recipe out of it because what better channel to make your voice heard than art? The smoothie contains only green ingredients like cucumber, spinach, mint and lime and it is a very healthy, natural and refreshing drink, perfect for this hot summer...or for the even hotter summers to come. I say the world is green of anger ... my smoothie is too! Because Mother Earth doesn't need us, but we can't survive without her! Peace
A simple yet jolly recipe that serves as a Christmas dessert for those times when you spent the entire Christmas Eve cooking and you realize in the evening that you have no more time to prepare the dessert.
This cake makes a perfect X-Mas table dish due to its festive color palette, it is light and perfect after a heavy meal (due to the yogurt). It could also become easily a summer cake (see the tips in my recipe).
And let me tell you a secret: Santa loves it ;)
