As mentioned, her laboratory of specialization is stone, however, she is also interested in other materials, such as metal, plaster and wood, as well as the relationship and connection between them.
She prefers a more figurative type of work that refers to geometric shapes, opting for carving, construction and fitting techniques, but also metal welding.
