Having been raised and educated in Slovakia, my initial introduction to the Scandinavian landscape came as I was studying Metal smithing in Norway, and glass and ceramic design in Finland. It was at this time that I fell in love with the Norwegian landscape of contrasts, craggy shores, pooling water, and undulating and jutting mountains. I employ these forms, colors, and textures in my work to evoke both the inviting and stark landscapes of Norway as well as the moving, and intricately beautiful forms of water. I depict movement using color that runs through the permeable glass canvases I create, allowing the color to pool and soak into the form.

In 2019 as an Emerging Artist in Residence at Pilchuck Glass School, USA, I began to integrate 3D modeling, CNC, and laser cutting into my practice by abstracting cartographic lines and creating 3 dimensional volumes that capture the essence of the place without being a direct representation. I continued to implement these digital manufacturing techniques in my art practice. Because my works are often based on a physical understanding of wave motion on the sea, and the mathematical simulation of  water molecules and their connections, computer 3D visualization tools are integral in the planning and fabrication of new works. My work relies heavily on digital manufacturing techniques to depict different natural phenomena therefore my professional practice includes continuous research into the application of new technologies.
