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 in Milano in 2014.

Spending time travelling and studying in different cities across the world, the creative process behind my work blends personal experience with fiction, integrating through photography a collective view on society, promoting a reconection to the earth through feminine sensitivity.

Initially drawn to fashion, the development of a hybrid surrealist vision allowed me to meet and collaborate at a young age with brands and publications such as Van Cleef&Arpels, Tom Ford, Vogue Italia and Harpers Bazaar, alongside international exhibitions in Milano, NY, Boston and Los Angeles.

Mainly Inspired by holistic studies on nature, my interests in a sustainable form of living are expressed in my personal production, focused primarily on the awareness, respect and celebration of the living principle within each form of being.

Starting from a focus on female sexuality, the work on the overall challenges perceptions of identity and reality to recreate understanding in modern philosophy, questioning the impact of human action on the relationship between body and nature.

Working as a visual artist, creative director and teacher, I am currently based between Paris and Mexico.
