Lives and works between Rome and New York, she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and the University of Image in Milan (school on the five senses created by photographer Fabrizio Ferri).
Her practice alternates between drawing, text, embroidery and printing, along with the use of unconventional techniques such as the use of pink epilating wax, with which she intervenes on textile materials belonging mostly to ancient trousseaux. The privileged support of her works, the trousseau, a set of dresses, linens and other accessories that a bride brings as a dowry to her new home, becomes a starting element for the investigation of the condition of women and their role as wives and mothers. Through a simple and contemporary language, she transforms the symbols of a portrayed and predefined femininity into works capable of conveying and investigating emotional, social and political issues, where irony leaves the viewer with the responsibility for a different key of interpretation and interpretation.
