Her studies were rounded off by two formative years spent drawing and painting in museums in London and Paris. In 2008 she completed the Telus interactive arts and entertainment residency at the Canadian Film Centre Media Lab. Stefanescu’s work has been exhibited in public and private galleries in Canada, France, and the U.S.A. The films she wrote, produced or designed have been shown at festivals in Canada, Germany, France and Italy. Isabella Stefanescu received the Ontario Arts Council K.M.
