Lives & works in Uji, Japan

 

I am an international artist originated from Hungary. I finished my artistic studies at ARU, Cambridge (UK) in 2020. My pharmaceutical background gives me a technical viewpoint that when combined with the freedom of artistic expression allows for the creation of something that is both exacting and exhilarating. I often use medical imaging as inspiration and represent my subjects through natural patterns. Currently, my focus is introspective and encompasses different approaches to the process of self-investigation.
