She creates with her artist friend, Anka XY Mierzejewska, the artistic group Old Banana. They organise performances in social spaces.

An intelligent and sensitive provocateur. An extreme individualist. Does not flatter people's tastes. She does not play up to current fashions. She neither emulates nor copies. She is completely distinct. Decidedly original.

Her works are in serigraph, linocut, serigraph on ceramics, ceramic sculpture, and painting. She often uses combinations of these techniques. She has not yet used glass in her work, but she expects that working with this new material will be an interesting experiment in her artistic life.
