She completed her BA studies in fashion design at the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca between 2018-2021. Then she started her MA studies at the same university, where she is still studying the mysteries of the profession. She believes that every person is a puzzle made up of the pieces of life's puzzle.

SELECTION OF WORKS
"Knowing our past is an important part of self-discovery. We need to be aware of where we come from, what background we have been part of since childhood, who the heroes of our own history have been and how all this affects us. To create something new and unique, we need to know our past and ourselves." This is the basic idea behind the concept Tünde has applied to her own medium. She focused on Szeklerland and Korond, her beloved village, where many traditional elements can be found, not only in ceramics, but also in Szekler gates and local costumes. The project was initiated with the aim of offering a view through her prism of a small part of Szeklerland and to make viewers think about their own past.

BOTTOMLESS PIT (2022)
Calm is a familiar word in people vocabulary, but this kind of calm lasts for a few moments, a few minutes or, in a few cases, days, but fear is always present in our vocabulary, in our days, in our moments.
Not one person, not two, but almost all the people in the world feel and live with it. It is the emotion by which people most resonate with each other, without it being conscious and spoken. It is a feeling that resonates with all people.
The carnation flower on the silhouettes has a symbolic meaning, associated with death: it is central to funerals and gravestones, and it's mostly used at these times.
