About Me

Dan & Monika in UP“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.” Salvador Dali


I am a watercolor artist, who also dabbles in acrylics. I live in Chicago with my husband and our 8 year old rescue, Brady. For the past 12 years I have also run Virtue Media, my web design company. I am so lucky to have had creativity and design a part of my entire life.

I am from Hungary and love to visit whenever I can and love to travel in general. You’ll find my paintings reference life, travel, nostalgia, and imagination.

I love the nuances of watercolor, the pigment and water at play. It’s one of my favorite mediums because of its fluidity and versatility. I try to create something new every day.

It’s a peaceful and meditative medium for me. Some have called my paintings “transportive”.

Over the years I’ve also enjoyed working with pencil & pen, pastel & charcoal, watercolors, and acrylics. I never got into oils but it may be something I try in the future. Nonetheless I enjoy being creative whatever the medium and I mix it up by taking a pottery or photography class to stretch my creative muscles.

Below are some earlier works from the 90s and 00s that I wanted to share. This website focuses solely on my current, watercolor pieces but I have worked in other mediums. Pastels and charcoals are really fun and messy. Pencil and ink are still part of my daily work. What’s next?!
