After graduating in bachelor degree from the Faculdade de Belas Artes she has started three years ago her artistic path. Since the beginning of university she has started to become aware of her surroundings, the city and the artistic interventions in the streets, the feeling to become part of that was born.

She has developed commercial projects for coffee houses and restaurants.
