Photographic documentation, scientific illustrations, representations of ancient, classical and contemporary poetic traditions are the visual methods the artist uses to explore the potential of structures, relationships, and meaning. Her main fields of interest are organic, animal and plant forms, as well as man in its mythical dimension.
