She cooperates with actors, writes screenplays and other texts and directs. The cycle includes, inter alia, the film "You're a Cute One, Sweety" starring the actress Elżbieta Lisowska-Kopeć, "Elephant Flesh" with an actress from Kazimierz Dejmek Theatre Teatr Nowy in Łódź Monika Buchowiec, "Live, you silly!" with Artur Beling, and more. In 2016 she obtained a PhD in the Fine Arts from the Faculty of Multimedia Communication at the University of Poznań, under the supervision of prof. Izabella Gustowska and prof. Marek Wasilewski. Since 2017 she has been a lecturer at the Faculty of Arts at the Institue of Visual Arts at Zielona Góra University. She lives and works in Zielona Góra, Poland, where she cooperates with the BWA Gallery Zielona Góra and Salony Fundation.
