Her artistic practice frequently resorts to the creation of languages through colour and form. She does not only produce in her studio, as she frequently participates in workshops and actions that encourage public interaction. These activities engage and stimulate the viewer to compose through exercises in action and composition, thus extending the artistic experience beyond the conventional boundaries of the studio and the art exhibition.
