She is always attentive to the shapes, interested in creating and
breaking asymmetrical geometries, finding the voids in the recesses.
With the art of serigraphy based on stencil, she explores differentiated
repetitions but reserves a space for surprise, each print becomes a
monotype. Her visual structures are launched into a vacuum like - events
spaces - or - with space - leading to powerful effects of scale.
