Her artistic work investigates the elements that make up a "home", understanding this concept in its most abstract dimension, not only as a physical space that is inhabited, but also as a sense of warmth, of belonging. The way of approaching these nuances is diverse and transforms in each project, but they always share two common features: a strong narrative and autobiographical element, and a strong sense of belonging.
