She plays music since her very early years. Piano was her first love but since than she learnt to play a few more instruments and electric tools – which are allow her to play by herself. She likes to make music improvisations for contemporary dance performances and theaters, cooperating with the dancers and creating in the moment with them. She still learns about jazz and improvising in the conservatory of Budapest.
Her favorite thing to do is getting inspired by other art forms, like visual arts or dancing.

At the age of 10 I took part in the work of the Nagyatád International Artist’ Colony, under the direction of
sculptor István Bencsik I carved marble and wood. „The ear of the world” 1975. Until the age of 10-14, I spent most of my afternoons in the fields of drawing and fire enamel by graphic artist Gitta Tomonyák, and I won an audience award at the district drawing competition. Unfortunately, despite being only interested in the fine arts, in the absence of parental support, I did not go to the Vocational High School for the Fine Arts.
During my high school years, I was most interested in various theatrical and visual media, I participated in the
creative circles of film director András Dér, I wrote and organized a scandalous Dadaist theatrical play. I’ve been basically a fine artist since I was a kid, but I couldn’t stand the rigid atmosphere of drawing circles, so
after high school, I studied music more, while never stopping visual work. During my years at jazz concerto, I
regularly visited the Munkácsy Prize winner László Tenk. His tactful critiques helped me understand a “more
professional” point of view. It was relatively late that I realized the necessity of basic studies and I did everything I could to bring in my
Since 2009, I have my own website with more than a hundred paintings and fifty photos: www.vinczegeza.hu
My music world came to an end long after graduating from the jazz conservatory, with the band Electrode in
Szentendre, with whom I dreamed of a 25-year-old dream: a band playing 100% improvisation with natural
background sounds, listenable free music and spontaneous birth. I held a solo exhibition with a six-member live band and three hundred guests in my studio gallery at Apostol street, I participated in several group exhibitions in cafes and cultural centers, from Almási Square to Bondi Golf Club in Sidney.
In 2010, New York-based In. Co. Artists Books selected a publication featuring 150 contemporary artists.
In recent years, I have developed plans for a perfectly sustainable and fully self-sufficient eco-creative
residential park to the level of technical feasibility.
To fund this, I set up a garden gallery in Leányfalu, which I sold in 2012, and by 2015, until my fiftieth birthday, I had painted my visionary visions, which I “channeled” out of the collective consciousness in thirty years. I am currently working on selling the completed series and creating a foundation collection that will serve to create a sustainable eco-community.
