While his mother encouraged his interest in art, he honed his skills in his father's sheet metal and air conditioning business. He moved with his parents to Spokane, Washington, and later majored in art at Washington State University. It is there that he met his wife, Rosemary.His first collaboration for commissioned work was a mural at Ridpath Hotel in Spokane, produced with Patrick Flammia in 1951. He became a leading liturgical artist, with sculpture, painting, stained glass, and reliefs inside over 200 churches and synagogues in the Pacific Northwest, including a bas relief sculpture on the east facade of the First United Methodist Church in Eugene, Oregon. Balazs served three terms as Washington State Arts Commissioner and helped draft the state's percent for art legislation
