About the artist

Hi there! Nice to meet you!

 I am an artist from Budapest, Hungary.

Art has always been a passion of mine as I haven't stopped drawing from the moment I could hold a pencil in my hand. This passion followed me through my high school years so it was obvious that I'll pursue my dream of becoming a full time artist.

 

I turned to fantasy to escape my environment of a city largely consisting only of - what is usually often referred to as -"commieblocks". Painting gave me an outlet to briefly move away from that grey reality. You might have noticed that my characters have a unique taste in fashion. That is because my other love is vintage fashion and fashion design. I hope you also notice that my creations are inspired by an olden times, vintage vibe. (At least I hope so!)

 

I want my art to offer people a chance to escape their reality (like I did) and feel cosy. To set this atmosphere I usually go for oil based and acrylic material. As an introvert, art is definitely the best way to express myself.

Thank you so much for visiting my website and following my art journey!

Clients said about  Dorina

Where to begin?!
Working with Dorina was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING experience from start to finish.
Needless to say, she is extremely gifted, responsive, and at the same time, an astute listener. Dorina was able to execute changes perfectly with a can-do attitude and, I'm guessing, with a smile (assuming I could have seen her).
This surprise custom birthday gift for my fashion-savvy sister in law is superlative.
Once this crisis is over, I will promptly frame and present it to her--can't wait!!!
Do not hesitate to visit Dorina's shop.

would post photo but shhhh, it's a surprise

"THIS WAS AMAZING. Dorina was helpful, responsive, and was able to customize my order hassle-free. Additionally, it shipped on a Wednesday from Hungary, and it came to the United States in perfect condition that Friday. I'm so happy! I can't wait to give this graduation print to my sister."

If I could give Dorina more than 5 stars, I absolutely would. She and her work are absolutely phenomenal. As any casual viewer can see, her work is stunning -- full of elegance and artistry. What a purchaser discovers is Dorina's outstanding communication and follow-up, incredible intuition for a client's vision, and excellent customer service.  

When I placed my custom order, I had a very particular idea in mind which I found somewhat difficult to articulate. After communicating with Dorina via a few messages, however, I was stunned to see what I had envisioned materialize. The final illustration was rendered with such delicacy and beauty that, equal to the art, I treasure the experience of having worked with such a generous and caring artist. 

I warmly thank Dorina and give her my highest recommendation!

"Dorina was amazing to work with! She was in constant contact with me during the creation of this piece and was always quick to respond. She did incredible work the whole way through! I received the final work under a week after she completed it, even though it was shipped from Hungary. I could not be happier with my work of art or with my experience with Dorina!"

"Honestly, one of the most beautiful things I've ever purchased. Dorina was an incredible person to work with, ensuring that everything about the sketch was amazing. I cannot begin to thank her enough for the magic she did! STUNNING!"
