I was born in Hungary and now living in Canada since 1975.

 

Between 1983-85 I attended the Graphic Design program in Toronto at George Brown College. Worked briefly in commercial art but turned to fine art soon after.

 

Largely self-taught with an occasional workshop, I used oil as my medium for the first ten years. Later on I experimented with numerous mediums. My latest interest is egg tempera in the tradition of old masters.

 

Drawing has always come naturally to me since early childhood. I often return to it for it’s comforting familiarity.

 

For the past 16 years I have lived on Pender Island in British Columbia, Canada. Here I had several exhibitions and for 10 years now I am a member of the Red Tree Gallery, which is a co-op.

 

Here on Pender Island I am lucky enough to be surrounded with effortless inspiration.
