As an artist she explores the frontiers conventionally attributed to reality and the photographic medium, aspiring to better understand the world around us and our own existence. His approaches promote and encourage critical and reflective analysis of the images that surround us, taking a contemporary and multidisciplinary perspective in its developments. 


The body of his work focuses mainly on questions of ontological order, related to the nature of the human, such as existence, appearance, identity and essence, exploring them through their material and conceptual dimensions.
