In my childhood I spent a lot of time in my mother’s photography studio, where I first forefelt joy of imaging.
I studied architecture because of loving drawing and worked as an architect between 1996 and 2006. Beside work I made drawings and paintings. I also studied cinematography along with painting.
I have been working as a full time artist since 2016, studied in the Art Studio of András Berkes and work at art symposiums every summer. I make short films to engage in other arts as well.
I am a member of Ludvig artists’ colony since 2012, organizer of Eger Art Symposium since 2014.
I opened my first solo exhibition in Budapest in 2009 and since then I appeared in several places every year with my works in Hungary and abroad.
I appeared at group exhibitions in Budapest, Munich, Vienna, Miami and London.
I live with my family in Wekerle estate, Budapest where I work in my own art studio.
