Hi! Thank you for visiting my shop!

A little background about myself and my shop.

I’m from Budapest, Hungary. I’m 29 years old.
I was not planning to move to Scotland at all. It all started as a summer holiday, when we came to visit my girlfriend’s family in the Scottish Borders, and never went back.

Edinburgh is easy to love. Coming here felt like going back in time or being on a movie set. I loved the colours, the sounds, the smells: it was all new for me.
In my holiday mood, I started sketching on the streets. As an art student I used to do that a lot and sell my paintings as I went - that’s how I afforded my backpack trips through many countries in Europe. I was about to do the same here, laying my paintings out on display, but I ended up chasing after them when the wind blew them away. So, I needed to find a wind-and-rain-protected space to show my work. I found some galleries in the city who were happy to work with me. That’s how it started.
After living here for one and a half years, Edinburgh still inspires me every day. Today I'm working with local art galleries and I'm selling my own prints here on Etsy too.
