I am an artist with a focus on jewellery, drawing and collage. 

I live and work in Budapest, Hungary.

My first name, Ildikó has two meanings: fighter and protector.

These two terms describe my character. 

I am interested in the relationship between picture and object.

My jewellery pieces are contemporary amulets. They embody personal experiences, memories and stories. Contentwiese I process basic human feelings and needs which I know - for example fear, protection, security or freedom. These are brought into a symbolic language with special attention to the material, whereby they communicate and decorate at the same time.
