                                a r t

I haven’t always been an artist. I studied Agricultural Engineering and Phytosanitary in University of Corvinus in Budapest and pursued a successful career as a plant buyer for nearly 10 years.I worked on the DNA based breeding of strawberries, I was a member of the first Hungarian Phalaenopsis in vitro Laboratory Team traveling for business all over Europe. Then, the opportunity to make a lifestyle change found me. Although I had always dreamed of becoming a painter, I never had the courage to give up a successful and lucrative career. When I met my husband and moved to Italy and began learning art, attended several courses about painting techniques, after about 2 years I finally decided to commit to becoming a full-time artist. I learned and practiced tirelessly, and began to sculpt my career as an artist.

Im interested in painting on a variety of different surfaces, fascinated and influenced by surrealism, metaphysical and pop art, both real and imagined forms the basis of most of my work.

 

I create a world of colours and use storytelling focuses on contemporary topics, highlighting both positive and negative aspects of our time.I create intricate works that blur fact and fiction while always introducing a sense of humour to give a powerful effect. I also play multiple characters in this drama where I often illustrate myself as small characters or animals. Sometimes, thoughts or some text scares the surface of the canvas but are never entirely readable.

A mom of two children, memories from my daily life, integration in a foreign country, little stories from my garden, my original study are my biggest sources of inspiration.

 

I have been invited to participate in prominent art events in Italy and abroad that include contemporary art fares in Genova, Milano, Florence, Bologna, Torino, and Sardinia (Italy), group exhibits in Hereford (United Kingdom), Houston and Washington DC (United States). I sell my paintings online and I am humbled by the enthusiasm and interest in my work from art collectors worldwide. My paintings are part of public collections at the Royal Office Romana and the Museo Casteldoria, Castelsardo, Italy.
