I started to create with the medium of Painting and initially my research was concentrated in the abstract relation between elements as colour, lines and shapes. From the very start my strongest interest was the movement occurring in the surface and the creation of the sensation of a space that surrounds us. I never faced the surface as a picture but always as a living area.

Gradually I got influenced by body research, hence the movement became even more concrete. In this period I experimented with the medium of video; as a natural process of union between the image and the movement.

The topics of my works are poetic and philosophical and they tackle indirectly social/ issues. I create atmospheres to express feelings and thoughts having my lived experience as a starting point. Performance is a medium that I use because I perceive the body as a container and conveyor of body-mind intelligence where different strata of experience take place and unfold.

When I perform, I pay much attention to the site-specific dimension of the performance/ installation which I perceive as a live organism in constant modification as a togetherness.
