Boglárka studied English literature and linguistics and trained in classical music and piano performance in Budapest, before moving to the UK. During and after her undergraduate studies in Art History at the University of York, she worked in various cultural institutions and art galleries both in the UK and Hungary, and she also tried herself in the world of auctions, working for a time at Christie’s in London. Her curatorial work relating to fine art and art sales focused mainly on contemporary art and photography.

She has recently completed her MSt in Creative Writing at the University of Oxford, specializing in screenwriting, and has been focusing on her writing and translation work since.

Her academic interests include intersectional areas of art, literature, architecture, music, film, and psychology, as well as the possibilities the arts hold in bringing about social change. In her free time she enjoys a good story, wherever and in whatever form she can find it.
