Hi! I am AUREL



Aurel followed her childhood dreams when she discovered the magic of a stage at a young age: a universe where everything is possible, and dreams can become real. She pushed the door of French renown operas and started working as a technician. Talented with designing and fixing things with her hands, she realized that her creativity could support the magic to happen.

Aurel is a genuine dreamer, full of new ideas that she loves to share. She is very much into action and planning. And she has a secret passion for Cabaret and is inspired by movie sound tracks. Self-driven and fast learner, she developed her skills to become set designer, scenographer, artistic director and pursued her career internationally working with big names in the industry.

She became a reliable and efficient team player that colleagues enjoy working with. She gained experience managing multi-cultural team across the globe, always focused on finding solutions that are cost efficient and creating visual and emotional impact.

Aurel’s design work starts from the user experience, then focuses on the visual details leading to transform conceptual ideas into emotions. 
From hand drawing to final touch painting, she loves to work with textures, lights and a whole range of materials. 

Globe-trotter, curious and daring, she is always up for new challenges and will be happy to bring her magic professional touch to your projects.
