She followed a training as a graphic designer and worked as a professional photo editor for magazines. She decides to buy a camera to capture the mind as a photographic memory.

Starting to photograph in the streets of Amsterdam in 2013 working on several projects like the Red Light District to make art over the theme to create different worlds of thoughts and to interpret human behavior. Most of her work is based on life experiences and self-knowledge techniques, but also the intellectual legacy of the universal mind. Representing an image of reality and sometimes to determine the Zeitgeist, giving the paradox of mind through projection.

Making staged photography to art the idea is more visualized to spark the imagination. The images view a classic style with compositions and dark flowing shadow lines to one design.
