While in Bulgaria, she studied Porcelain and Glass design in the National Art Academy, Sofia.
Her recent works question the epistemological values of numeric languages and their scientific and art translations. Fascinated by how to materialize temporality, she constructs decaying installations, and she composes light and sound experiences, as well as physical scenarios to interact with.
Her work has been shown at many festivals, exhibitions and educational events. Recently, her works have been exhibited at NOVA XX exhibition at Centre Wallonie-Brussels in Paris among other female artists, with an emphasis on art, science and technology. In the last few years has exhibited at the Design Museum in Ghent, KIKK festival, Namur, at KANAAL, Brussels, De Warande, Turnhout, Goethe Institute, Sofia and Thessaloniki, Sofia City Gallery.
