Comunication, Premio Razzano and she has participated in group exhibitions such as Nuovi pittori della realtà, Contemplazioni, La nuova
figurazione italiana, Imago Feminae and Hyper. Her work has received critical recognition in magazines such as Art e Dossier, Arte
Mondadori, Elle, Juliet, Segno, Frattura Scomposta and Wall Street International Magazine.
