About

I graduated from the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts. I am a member of the Association of Hungarian Artists, and the Studio of Young Artists and Designers. My works have been on display at a number of exhibitions since 1997.
I design woven carpets, tapestry and felted wall-hangings on personal order. The dialogue between me and the customer, the desired function, as well as the atmosphere and colour-scheme of the future location of the application of the work are all taken into consideration in the process of making different formal and colour plans. Then based on the plan eventually chosen by the customer, I prepare the carpet's basic outline plan. Following the procedure of collecting the required raw material, I carry out most of the dyeing of the yarns, wools and silks myself.

Then based on the plan eventually chosen by the customer, I prepare the carpet's basic outline plan. Following the procedure of collecting the required raw material, I carry out most of the dyeing of the yarns, wools and silks myself.
I started feltmaking in 1998. I am eversince amazed at the magic of limitless creation of the wonderful shapes and colours from the smooth woolen fibres by various feltmaking techniques. I make felted space- and wall art, carpets, wall-hangings, outfit accessories and children's toys. In recent years, I have been thinking in ever growing size. As the surface of my works expand, the tiny details and factures of my art become more and more delicate. During the process of felting, I have been experimenting with monofilament yarns in my latest projects.
I mix modern techniques with traditional uses of materials. I make the surfaces of my works extraordinary by bringing woolen flakes, monofilaments, carded Hungarian racka wool and merino wool together, each representing different character. I melt silk-fibres, silk-yarns and loosely woven silk into my felting, thus, my felting art acquires a painting-like quality and at the same time, the textile's qualities are left unchanged. I lead the spun woolen yarns sometimes in parrallel, sometimes in tangled and other times in virtuosic lines, thus the surface becomes plastic and vivid together with the help of layering and cutting-out.
Using technical versatility and passing the traditional treasury of patters behind, I plant my own ideas into felt.
