Artist Overview

As a mixed media artist, and director at HMC (Hungarian Multicultural Center), nonprofit, working mostly on paper and paint on canvas, I am caught up in the moment but that it is constantly changing.  One of my great challenges is coping with this reality of change.  As soon as I set up - everything changes. As soon as I lift my brush - the moment has passed.  These fragile fragments and impressions themselves are changed by the act of trying to represent them in paint. It is not so much an exact place or time that I am trying to evoke but rather my story about that moment.
