In 1976 I graduated in architecture at the Technological University of Budapest. The Faculty of Architecture was a centre of unofficial intellectual and undergrund art life that had a dominant effect on me.
After finishing the university I started to work at Csiky Gergely Theatre in Kaposvár, which was the best Hungarian theatre and an important intellectual and art centre of the given period. I became a scenographer there, working together with the best theatre makers: writers, directors, actors, designers, musicians and technicians. After 1986 I spent four years at Radnóti Theatre in Budapest. Since the birth of my first child in 1991 I have worked as a free-lance scenery designer, costume designer, and graphic designer for different theatres. During the last 40 years I have worked in more than 250 theatre performances.
In the past 13 years, teaching at the Department of Scenography at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts has been the focus of my activities. I obtained the degree of Doctor of Liberal Arts in 2008, and did my habilitation in 2012 at this university. I have given workshops and mastercourses at universities of different countries. Though I practice stage design even today, the absolute priority for me is my students success both at home and in international theatre life.
I m active in many countries and in many fields of art like scenography, installation, architecture, fine arts and art theory, but all my works have something in common. My artwork is always around a social content. The artists social responsibility is the most important issue for me.
