She practiced the techniques of lithography, etching, xylogravure, serigraphy and photography, in short all these processes to produce multiples. It is at the Geneva Center for Contemporary Engraving that first impressions, editions and exhibitions have emerged. All these techniques remained the main theme of his artistic career in Geneva; the wood, the point on Plexiglas in single print, or large prints of characters xylographed on Japanese paper, then monochrome prints superimposed lame. And finally, linocuts and digital elements, motion design, dialogue between animated images and printed prints ... His professional commitment made him share the activities of the Cabinet of prints of Geneva during twenty years (documentary preparation for exhibitions inventories and catalogs).
