 "Oana Stoian was born in Lugoj in 1993. Her passion for art distinguished itself since childhood, when she started to express her creativity, first through painting and then, during her adolescence, through the discovery of photography as her medium of choice. Her work shows an abstraction of reality, a loss of identity in the context of mysterious scenes. In 2015, she received her Bachelor's degree from the Department of Photography-Videography at the Art and Design College, West University of Timisoara and, in 2017, her Master's degree in Publicity Graphics. In December 2015, she had her first personal photography exhibition in Timisoara, followed in 2017 & 2018 by several personal and group exhibitions. In 2016, Oana was selected for the Professional shortlist in the Staged category of the Sony World Photography Awards. Since 2011 Oana started making resin jewelry with botanical inspiration."
