She moved to Barcelona, where ​​she organizes various events. In 2010 she lives in Milan, working there as a Stylist and Costume Designer. she starts collaborating with photographer Sabbagh, Cosmopolitan, L’Oreal and Nikon.

In fact, only those who can show courage have the perfect combination of creativity and spontaneity to capture the tensions of a naked body. She goes beyond photography: the bodies she portrays are transfigured, albeit in a very different way from that of Michelangelo.
