Art as reflection

I believe that you only know what you can express. You don’t know what a salad is if you can’t make one. Or would you call an apple tree such if it never produces any apples? I’ve learned that the fruit is the only proof of what is inside you. When you draw, for example, you see a bunch of things in front of you, things you’ve touched, you’ve smelled, you’ve looked at for years, but the moment you try to recreate them in the page, you find yourself having to assess what is the actual shape they have, what is their size, how do they fit in their environment, where are they located in relation to the horizon. In short, you have seen, but you have never observed—you know nothing…

In search of a creative outlet

I’ve been searching for a creative outlet all my live. I tried singing, playing a musical instrument, even painting. I didn’t have any talent. So I gave up trying until I saw someone drawing in colored pencil two years ago. I’ve been hooked ever since…

Inspired all day long

When I do something, I am really passionate about it. I like to create and learn new things but don’t have a creative career at the moment. I work in a hospital in an intensive care unit as a nursing assistant and am married with five children, two of whom have already moved out. Our family lives in an average sized Swedish town but we are originally from Hungary. My biggest interest is people: I am fascinated by the human body, the expressive faces and gestures, and understanding the interplay between body and soul. I like to have deep and long discussions with others…
