Maria Surducan (n. 1985) works as an illustrator and comics book author from her studio in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

She believes images are an imprecise way of translating reality, which, in a way, makes them more accurate than words.

Maria loves mythology, fairy-tales and coffee. So far, she has published six graphic novels, in French, Hungarian and Romanian, and has great plans for the future.

She has also worked on advertising projects and picture books. Clients include Goethe Institute, Milka, Sprite, Vodafone, Vellant, Studioset, Stripes Publishing and Usborne. She speaks English, French, Romanian and a bit of German.
