She works and masters quite diverse media raging from painting, industrial-like hand modelled ceramics, inflatable sculptures, installation, photography, to the use of technology.

Her work was shown in different provinces in her country as well as abroad.

Artist Statement
I am interested in the concept of identity and all its possible ways of construction:
Through the places where we inhabit, the icons, the symbols, the encounter of natural and artificial and the dichotomy between inner and outer worlds.
The different media, materials and colors used , also put an accent on this.
