I’m a textile designer who pursues innovation, interdisciplinary, and uniqueness, ultimately attempting to reach beyond the boundaries of the conventional reception and understanding of textile design. In my work, I aim to employ various media and methods to create both artistic and commercial contemporary design for textiles.
I have earned a master’s degree in Textile Design at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. There, I have not only developed my painting and drawing skills but also a conceptual approach to design. Various internships abroad have contributed to improving my competences in printmaking for fashion. In order to further deepen my knowledge in woven textiles, I decided to pursue studies at Aalto School of Art, Design, and Architecture in Finland,  where I currently attend the second year of Master studies, focusing on jacquard weaving and it's combination with different finishing, printing and dyeing methods.
