Artist Statement

As a professional chalk artist, I create hand-drawn and lettered chalk signs to convey commercial messages, often based on food-related themes, such as illustrated groupings of seasonal edibles, fruits, or flowers, sometimes inspired by folkloric elements from my Hungarian-Belgian background.

My personal path has allowed me to develop my artistic talents and techniques through personal study of illustration and lettering techniques, taking advantage of any opportunity that presents itself to improve my sketching skills. I share my knowledge with others by teaching workshops in my studio in Oak Grove.

Mediums I use range from liquid chalk, pastels, pencils, to acrylics.

Medium: Chalk Ink
