I am a graphic designer and painter. Before turning to visual arts and design I studied linguistics at the university, taught Latin in a medical academy, managed programs in the field of contemporary art. Although I used to have full-time commitments almost all the time, I have been doing a lot of things free-lance for the past 20 years. I am Russian, speak English and French fluently, am learning Hungarian. I currently reside in a small village in Hungary some 100 km from Budapest.
