Degree in Fine Arts: Painting, from the Faculty of Fine Arts of Lisbon, where she also completed the Masters in Painting (2012) and Teaching of Visual Arts (2013). In 2020 he completed his PhD in Fine Arts. Since 2019, in addition to being an academic researcher, she is the founder and artistic director of Duplex. Lives and works in Lisbon.

Disruption. Form. Human Condition. His work is built on the border between a rational formalism and a need for psycho-emotional extrapolation that seeks to give a complex and inscrutable meaning to each of his works, exploring what is structural to the poetics of the human condition.

Starting from a personal narrative, but never explicitly biographical, and systematically adapting the work processes, its search is always that of an intimate echo with the observer, making use of a methodological, aesthetic and conceptual investigation of disruptive experiences, such as the failure, paradox, contradiction, conflict.​
