She took lessons from the famous Hungarian sculptor Ferenc Medgyessy in Pestújhely in her childhood. She acquired the profession of ceramic molding in 1990, then continued her studies at the Budapest Secondary School of Fine and Applied Arts (“Kisképző”). She graduated there in 1994 with a degree in leatherwork. On weekends, she went to the Gábor Szabó studio to visit the Százados út Artists’ Colony, where she was strongly influenced by the classic studio atmosphere and artist atmosphere.

As a young mother, she painted a lot during her years at home, designing and making sculptures, small sculptures and plaques to order. In connection with an invitation to an exhibition, she rediscovered sculpture and its individual style. Her sculptures are realistic, yet transcendent, carrying a symbolic meaning. Thanks to her strong aspirations for independence, she experiments with a free, unique, unique language. The special way of construction comes from the Mediterranean clay pots made in childhood, these gave the training, the routine for the technical implementation: the chamotte clay retains itself along a good static concept.
