She has had a number of solo and collaborative works exhibited and performed internationally: in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Austria, The Netherlands, Bulgaria, Germany and the UK. In terms of relevant recent work, in February 2016 she did a performance sketch as part of the Slow-Cooker workshop series in Aberdeen (Peacock Gallery) and in March she participated in the Sound Thought Conference held at CCA in Glasgow with the lecture-performance “Placing Sonic Dialogues”.

Her audio-visual work is layered and tackles issues of identity and belonging.
