I graduated from the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in 2000 with a degree in stage and costume design. During my first year I studied fine art painting, which has left a strong influence on my way of seeing to this day. My approach to design is characterized by a colorful and experimental outlook, and this is reflected in my work for contemporary and classical ballet, theatrical fairy tales, and performances in experimental theatre. I have also worked frequently designing sets and costumes for feature films and television shows and commercials. My work has been used and acclaimed in almost all major and minor Hungarian theatres over the past two decade. I have been teaching theatre/film set and costume design in different Universities in Europe for the past few years. I have been working in more than 90 productions during my career.
