It all began 29 years ago when, as a child before I even started going to school, my parents had framed 3 drawings -cityscapes- done by my older sister and placed them prominently and with great pride on our living-room wall. At that time it seemed to me as a grand gesture, showing great appreciation for my sister, and I was happy for her, but at the same time I wanted to also be able to realize something as great as this.
To this day, I can vividly remember that moment , which was of maximum intensity for me at that time. Seeing the joy and delight in my parent’s eyes, and out of a childish ambition I decided to do the same or even better than my sister.
Thus , once I started the first grade I took extracurricular classes of art for children, where I have studied ceramics and painting. Then I went on to study at the high-school of fine arts, where I began to understand the true beauty and complexity of sculpture, which as time went by grew on me and became more and more an integral part of myself.
During my Undergraduate and Masters studies, I had the great honor of learning a lot about sculpture, from a great man, a great sculptor, an exemplary professor and a true role model for me, mister Peter Jecsa, whom unfortunately is no longer with us. I cherish the memories of our many interesting and constructive discussions, and of our last one, when he asked me to promise that I will never quit sculpting no matter what, and so I did.
Today holding dear to his memory, with the constant desire of making my parents happy and proud, and hoping to bring joy to my onlookers hearts, I keep true to my promise and continue to sculpt, offering at the same times a tiny peace of my being through each of my works, sculptures that I make with an open heart and without which I would not be the same person that I am today.
