I was born in 1982 in Szeged. I completed my primary and secondary school studies in Szeged. After getting to love drawing and painting during my childhood, the first significant step was in 1996 when I joined the club of fine art in Szeged, led by the famous painter Ferenc Pataki. It was with his guidance that I started to deal with professional issues. Beside pencil and coal drawings I was interested in the technique of aquarell, pastel and oil painting. My first individual exhibition was open by my master in Szeged in 1998.I met János Kass, the Kossuth – prized graphic artist, who supported my ambitions.After leaving secondary school I was admitted to the programme organizer department of the University in Szeged.
