Csekö was born in Colorado and grew up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In 2010, she moved to Boston, Massachusetts to pursue an MFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University. She is the recipient of a Somerville Arts Council Visual Arts Fellowship 2021, and the Somerville Museum Community Curator grant 2021/2022. She was invited to the Artcubator 2020-21 Residency Program at the Umbrella Center for the Arts, and as a Visiting Artist by Emerson College for the Summer of 2020. In addition, she has public murals on view in Boston, commissioned by the Stonybrook Neighborhood Association and Boston Downtown BID, in partnership with the Boston Literary District. In 2018 Csekö was invited to the Assets for Artists MassMoCA residency program where she further investigated her multi-disciplinary practice as a sculptor, painter, and performer.

Her work gravitates around conversations and experiments grounded on a paradigm shift from competitive to collaborative mindset in social actions and interactions.

Csekö is the recipient of a 2016 Walter Feldman Fellowship, awarded by the Arts and Business Council of Greater Boston. She divides her time between being a Practicing Artist and an Educator at Montserrat College of Art.
