Her work is moving through different languages and genres,

using the observation as a study of phenomena and beyond.

She deals with accurate wording and reactions as existential humorous poetry,

considering that aesthetics are an ethical statement which manifests our presence.

It’s not about the story, it’s about speeding the thought.

Scenic space as an area of a major consistency and high risk,

working with terms of minimalism, precision, grief and tenderness,

bravery, present, simplicity and humour.
