I graduated at Moholy Nagy University of Art and Design MOME Budapest, Hungary in 2002 as Textile Designer specialized in handwoven textiles. After the University I was working as a freelance designer, produced hand woven textiles, blinds, cushions for private customers using an antic loom originated from Finland.
Soon meanwhile of emerging deeply in my creative activity, I established family and accompanied my husband in abroad and lived during 10 years in 4 different countries (Bucharest-Romania, Warsaw- Poland, Sta Cruz-Portugal, Lilongwe- Malawi ) having children and seeking for inspiration.
As my loom would have been too big to take it with me I started to paint again, and to take photographs during the journey about everything what came across while encountering with different cultures. My main inspiration was my cat, as well other animals, wildlife, nature, and historical buildings, landscape, people, etc. In my paintings I prefer bright, vibrant colours, and drew inspiration from the organic and geometric forms, and motives and angular contours of Art Nouveau Movement which swept through the decorative arts and architecture in the late 19th, and early 20th century.
Currently I live in Portugal, and working at Karavella Atelier, which is located in a lovely picturesque seaside village 60 km to the North from Lisbon. Karavella Atelier offering a rental for artists from all over the world, and promoting the art and turistic activity in the area.
