She focuses on the need to express emotions through the body language, sensitivity she acquired and refined during the many years passed studying classical ballet that has let the artist to the choice of transforming her body in the perfect medium form painting, in a unique technique that is her instict direct expression.

Vivid colours to communicate intimate emotions, no brush used, only her body giving shapes to the human figures in the compositions mixing performance and body painting.

The artist merges in a visceral way with her creation. Her distinct style is the product of the employment of various media including acrylics, collage and assemblage. The accurate selections of the materials employed is a relevant parte of her body of work: silk, feathers, chandelier's crystals, just to name a few, merge themselves around the hurma figures represented.These little objects, expressing their meaning like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, help unravel the representation and, at the same time, they ground the artistic vision with their intrusions.

Her artworks have been shown and awarded in domestic and international art galleries and museums such as the Piccadilly International Art Museum in Seoul, South Korea, with the french Société des Artiste Indépendants as well as group shows in Zurich, Montecarlo Monaco, New York, Basilea and Rome where she lives and works.
