“A picture is a poem without words” (Horatius)

I was born in October 1974 in Budapest, Hungary and have been living in Nashville, Tennessee since 2004.

From an early age I recognized my artistic calling and began experimenting with different forms of art, mostly drawing, painting, and writing. However, I struggled to find the full richness of my creative voice. Then in late 2010 I received as a gift my first camera, a small point and shoot. As I began taking photographs I suddenly found that, unlike any other artistic form, I was able to articulate all that I saw and felt in life.

It is through the medium of photography that my artistic expression has begun to receive positive reviews and encouragement. This support has come from established professional photographers as well as gallery owners who have long standing experience with photography.

Photography has become my deepest and truest passion. I never go anywhere without my camera. I am inspired by impulses and emotions and I want to be able to capture them when they happen. I am most interested in the details and subtleties of the ordinary and the unusual charm of the customary.
