Recognized by the Portrait Society of America, Takács holds Signature Status at the Akron Society of Artists, Associate with Distinction at American Women Artists and elected membership with Allied Artists of America and Salmagundi and Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Clubs.

Her Chicks with Balls portrait series, now 50 paintings, heads to its first Museum Solo show at the Zanesville Museum of Art in Ohio. Takács’ work has a decided feminist focus as she embarks on a Goddess series, reimagining mythological characters through a contemporary lens, hoping to create living, breathing souls on canvas to invite viewers to linger, connect and think.
