My name is Timea Szabó, I was born on the 3rd of May in 1984 at Székelyudvarhely, but I grew up in a nearby village called Parajd. This village is also my current residence. I graduated from the Dr. Palló Imre Fine Arts High School in 2002 with oustanding results. I got my university degree in 2006 at The West University of Timisoara. I have studied fashion design at the the Faculty of Arts and Design. The toppic of my state examination was the Coca Cola. After I have got permission to present my design, the company liked my ideas very much, so a month later an advertising campaign appeared and it was called “Noul Light Style Coca Cola”. The collection became Coca Cola Couture.
Over the years I gained experience from famous artists, like Bocskay Vince internationally recognized sculptor, Dr. Elena Minodora Tulcan, Dr. Cristian Velescu, Mihály Ferenc restorer. During my studies I always took part in optional activities, events in order to develope my fine art skills. Near gaining experience I have also won numerous prizes, these prizes let me stay motivated and commited to art. In 1999 I got first place on an exhibition oranised in memory of Imecs László. In 2001 I won the National Competition with the best plans, later this year in an international art camp organised at Sovata I have won the first prise. As a student I made restorations and I have gained experience from Mihály Ferenc, who is the most admired Transylvanian restorer. During university I had the opportunity to publish my artworks at group exhibitions. In the recent years I was painting for order, I have sold numerous paintings abroad.
