ARTWORK    STATEMENT    COMMISSIONS    ABOUT   


Born in 1992 from a Slovak mother and Italian father, I grew up in Italy, graduating in Photography at the University of Visual Communication and Design IED in Milano in 2014.

Finishing my studies I spent time travelling and researching in various sites across the world, learning about diverse cultures, religions and perspectives on living and psychosomatic healing.

Starting my career as a photographer within the fashion industry, my interest focuses on shifting the creative process of business into collaborations supporting a long term plan based on the use of organic, renewable, and compostable materials, in a respectful and conscious approach to the environment and the people involved in the process of making of the artwork.

The creative process at the basis of my work synthesises personal experiences of Ayurveda, Yoga and Plant Medicine to create using nature as primal source and tool, unifying the characteristics of different indigenous traditions and encouraging the understanding, respect and celebration of the living principle within each form of being.

Desires and obsessions of the human transmute into the elegant aesthetic of textures and colours, challenging perceptions of identity and reality to recreate understanding in modern philosophy.
Through the exploration of femininity, the work questions the impact of human action on the relationship between body and nature.

Working as a visual artist I am currently living in Paris.
