AtelierA, her art studio at the edge of the Arctic glacier that carved out London, is open by arrangement. Her studies as a visual artist include training at the Royal Academy, the Royal Drawing School and the Art Academy. Her work has been selected for various awards and artist residencies by Arts Council England, Canon Fellowship, Arctic Circle, Art Students League, and Deutsche Börse at the Frankfurter Kunstverein.
She curates projects as the art director of Creatives without Borders. Venues include Antarctic research stations, an Arctic art museum, NY concerts, Google HQ, a French castle, the British and European Parliaments and various universities and galleries. She continues her work on juries and at artist residencies, and teaches internationally.
In 2016-17 she has been artist in residency of a composer-conductor choral ensemble in NYC. In 2018 she will be working in a 17th century Elizabethan Hall built on the 12th century manor house in the English countryside, where she was selected as an artist in residence.
Her libretto and poems have been set to music by composers and premiered by music ensembles. The works are registered by BMI. Her articles, short stories, play and books have been published internationally; her journalism has been published by openDemocracy, The Guardian, and others. Public engagement in the arts is part of her work in English, French and Hungarian. It includes teaching art workshops, working on art installations and pop up art, portfolio reviews, flash mobs, talks.
