Her works facilitate the relation between the artist and the audience in site-specific situations. Currently, she has the studio in The Hague, NL.   ‘As an artist I follow my family motto “everything can be useful” and I work with what appears within my reach, both places and objects. Technically I was educated as a painter and art educator, but now pursuing my passion I work as an interdisciplinary artist and art mediator. In my artistic work, I believe that creative thinking and actions can redefine and revitalize established situations. I accept change as inevitable and always try to find a solution. The territory where I am creating is called art mediation, social engaged art and delegated performance. I believe in the power of communities, self organizations, peer learning  and art as a tool for unconventional changes, that’s my statement.’   Selection of places where she presented her works: Witte Rook (Breda, NL), Goleb (Amsterdam NL), Kunstacademie Friesland (Leeuwarden NL), AIL (Vienna AT), Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art (Warsaw PL), LUHOvaný Vincent (Luhačovice CZ), KunstHaus (Wiesbaden DE), WIPAW Duży Pokój (Warsaw PL), Baltic Gallery of Contemporary Art (Ustka PL), Miami New Media Festival, (Miami USA), Media Art Biennale (Wrocław PL), Muza space for art (Jaffa Tel Aviv ISR), Galeria H2O  (Barcelona ES)
