My journey with art started in Budapest, Hungary, where my elementary art teacher, Juhász Jutka neni, encouraged me with warmth and trust. She taught me to express myself through drawing and painting, and we enjoyed hiking across the countryside with our sketchbooks. Soon enough, art had stuck on me. I went on to study at a specialized arts high school, after which I attended the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest.
At 25, I moved to Israel where I studied graphic art, animation and illustration. I worked as a children’s book illustrator and won a national competition in stamp design, which resulted in the wide distribution of my stamps.
After a couple of years painting in Berlin and the south of Holland, I moved to Santa Barbara, California. There I studied printmaking for 3 years at the beautiful community college overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I was represented by Gallery 113, Gallery Los Olivos and had a solo show of my monotypes and mono prints in 2008.
The same year I moved to Boulder, Colorado where I got interested in clay. I found it refreshing to move from 2 to 3 dimensional work and to incorporate my skills in this new media. I'm fascinated by the different clay bodies, glazes and firing methods; especially raku firing. My work includes functional as well as sculptural pieces.
I live in Boulder with my husband, 3 children, dog and 2 cats, where I’m a member in the studio of the Boulder Potters’ Guild. I feel privileged to be able to continue my journey through the secret language of art, wherever it leads me.
