My work is inspired by fragments and details of images with various textures, transparencies, and unique colors. I try to reveal hidden and potential meanings by combining techniques such as manual and digital photography, photo-collage, sewing, and painting.
My goal is to create a dynamic tension between the straightforward representation of the subject, though formally deconstructed, and the abstract composition of the whole.
By focusing on intimate detail and the specific character of a chosen subject, I question and probe its beauty in order to reveal, reconsider, or condemn its clichés.

Primarily self-taught in photography, she has refined her skills through classes at the International Center of Photography in New York, where she was also an Assistant Teacher.

She uses these fragments to create her photographic collages.
