Doina Iacob

Doina Iacob was born in 1971, in a provincial town in Romania. Manifesting interest in drawing since she was little, she spent her childhood drawing on absolutely everything that came in contact with her hand, from paper sheets to furniture, books, asphalt, even doll faces. After high school and another two years in a college of engineering in Bucharest, Doina chose to drop school and follow her passion. She committed as a painter decorator using a technique almost forgotten today and extremely complicated (Daum Nancy and Galle), some sort of reverse painting on multiple layers of glass. She worked in this field for almost 10 years, while also drawing cartoons and caricatures for a Hungarian company and comic strips for a local newspaper.
In 2004 she emigrated to the United States where she settled with her family, only a few miles away from Chicago.
She is a self-taught artist.
