Her art focuses around an individual, lost in the absurdity of existance, around his/her twisted realtionships and fears. She plays with raw and poetic language, with image and silence, always finding new levels of nothingness and worth(lessness) of our being. When working with kids, the kids become leaders of the project. Only in that case she puts pedagogic and terapeutic effect of art above final product.
