My diverse practices are overarched by an on-going intersectional research and interest in gender, sexualities and cultures. While as an art producer and birth-worker I create actions and models towards equal representation and better recognition and care for womxn, as an artist I create images and performances that will instigate debate and new narratives about these subjects. 


Starting by overcoming the rejections and misrepresentation of womxn’s professional abilities during pregnancy and beyond, I have built, a solid track record of platforms, engaging individuals and institutions in this conversation. I have created an ever-growing network of artists and supporters, demonstrating the need for new approaches and infrastructures both for artists and the cultural industries.

I have been and keep wanting to provide new references for models that can inspire a sea-change across sectors; integrate ways we perceive and balance the private, the domestic and the public, as well as the perception and normalization of womxn’s artistic output as part of the cultural and social landscape.


In this framework, I have also been developing my practice as a performance artist with an interest in feminisms, migration, body politics, social constructions and sexualities. Using both autobiographical materials as well as being inspired by the work of artists like Martha Wilson, Carolee Schneemann and Hannah Wilke, I am producing a transdisciplinary body of work that combines movement, photography, video and text.
