Maria Surducan (n. 1985) works as a freelance illustrator and comic book author from her studio in Cluj-Napoca.

She believes images are an imprecise, and therefore a slightly more accurate means of translating reality, than words.

She has worked on advertising projects, graphic novels and picture books. Clients include Cărturești, Goethe Institute, Milka, Sprite, Vodafone, Vellant, Studioset, Stripes Publishing and Usborne. She speaks English, French, Romanian and, if pressed really hard, German.
