Since 2010 she has studied art, philosophy and photography with various teachers and artists.
She is interested in the power of the photographic image to produce and transmit knowledge and to structure individual and collective memory.

She constructs her work with materials that she transfers between different fields of knowledge or disciplines.
“I investigate, categorise, re-signify, execute minimal gestures through which an image that circulates in a certain field of knowledge moves and produces other multiple ways of seeing and thinking”.
What I try to capture is a “spark” that is not seen on the surface, that hides behind appearances and often slips into the shadows of emptiness, into the interstices of the multiple fictions of the world that images help to narrate.
