She studied Photography and Audiovisual Arts in Athens and has a MFA on Photography from the University of Gothenburg.

She is a photographer and Visual artist that works with staged self-portraiture.
Her work is mainly autobiographical and she explores the female identity within the social structures of Western Society. 
The "SMILEY CUT" stands as a visual chronicle of my journey through cancer treatment. The photographic medium provided an outlet for me to navigate the stages of grief and confront the transformative journey my body was undertaking.

Through these images, I reclaimed a measure of control over my own physicality.
