Her most recent research explores the texture of natural pigments on the skin and the relationship with the material as paint. “I am very focused on using our bodies as a medium of rebellion. I find very fundamental the fact of being aware of our physicality and what we can do with it.”

She worked as a dancer at Phoenix Dance Theater (Leeds), Jet Lean Dance Theater (Malaysia), Dance in art (The Netherlands), English National Ballet Youth Co (London), Johan Inger… She participated at the Kunst10daagsen in Bergen, and Roezt Festival (Wijk an Zee).
