..In the artist’s creation, a particular place is occupied by the children`s books` graphics, this category being rewarded with various prizes at national and international book fairs. From 1991, the painter collaborates in an active manner with publishing houses in Moldova. The illustrations for Adventures of the shah by Mihail Sadoveanu (1994), The bell by L. Granici (1997), Three wonderful stories by Mihail Sadoveanu (1998), but also the images for texts by Grigore Vieru, Spiridon Vangheli, Claudia Partole, demonstrate the skill and soul of a true artist, who surpassed personal situations to the art’s advantage.
