The artist's works take the human body to address universal problems linked to identity, vulnerability, and transformation.

The artworks are inspired by photographs from newspapers and magazines and are made with household materials such as aluminum foil, sulfite, cotton, and cold porcelain in order to create access to collective memory.

The artist makes a personal reading of today's society through the chosen images, she observes humanity, its behaviors, and problems. The bodies exhibited in her work relate that the human condition that manifests itself, that claims for others, then they join each other and become one. Both in paintings and sculptures, these bodies go through a process of transmutation. They are covered, diluted, faded, covered, and wrapped over the bodily appearance. Finally, from this transformation, the artist creates her own mythology.
