Textiles in a thousand features are constantly around us, they touch us, influence us in every way. Unnoticed or emphasized they are present in our lives. In my case the latter one is dominant. Since my early childhood I have found joy in trying varoiuous techniques and experimenting with all sorts of textiles.

 

I feel proud to have had the opportunity to work together with highly respected experts contributing to their activities with curtains, tapestries and textile wall covers.

 

Having an experimental character I keep searching for individual approaches in my work. What mostly interests me is how to adjust various textile features to result in a final form different from the original components. I find it fascinating to reconsider and apply old traditional techniques in their up-to-date revitalisations. My intention is to find the limits of various textile techniques and expand them to their extremes.

 

My intention is to create unique accessories: handbags, belts, scarves in my studio inspired by the technique of the „caligraphic embroidery” used in Transylvania. Dating back to 1890 the masters of the Hungarian Art Nouveau had already been captured by the characteristic folk art of Kalotaszeg. This region is particularly rich in textile crafts featuring a wide range of techniques, embroidery patterns and styles. „Caligraphic embroidery” got its name from the technique applied in the design, since the most gifted women of the community used to draw or rather „write” the outline of the pattern to be embroidered by fellow craftswomen.

 

One of the dominant motifs in my preference is the feather of the peacock due to its symbolic message. The peacock is special because it was the emblematic animal of ancient Roman empresses and priestess. The tail feathers symbolize the stary sky and the gem refers to eye of the omnivisual creator above it. The peacock is also the symbol of beauty, dignity and charismatic existence.

 

With my creations I intend to underline the aesthetic values of feminine self-expression.
