The last two years have been two of the most challenging and exciting years of making in my studio to date. Playing with color, scale, charcoal,  
paint, printmaking and pen, I pushed myself to places I did not know I could go and created two bodies of work that are deeply
personal, evocative and human.

Relief— The Stories We Carry, is a solo exhibition on display now through July 10, 2023 at Milwaukee’s award-winning
Saint Kate Arts Hotel.

“Relief— The Stories We Carry presents a new selection of work that explores the expressive potential of the human figure through the artist’s
dual figure drawing and writing practices. Bela’s inherently vulnerable representations not only propose a new way to see the figure
but also immerses viewers in an emotional and sensitive portrayal of human experiences and potential.”

Bittersweet, my first true adventure into color, will be on display at the juried Fresh 40 Inaugural Art Exhibition & Sale Friday, June 2
through Sunday, June 4, 2023
. This collection is a whimsical and delicate portrait of mother nature and the lessons
she teaches us about the sorrow and ecstasy that is life’s bittersweet.
