Her creations include Of ivory and flesh - statues also suffer (2014); Paradise - private collection (2012-13); (M)imosa(2011), a project developed with Trajal Harell, François Chaignaud and Cecilia Bengolea; Guintche (2010); A Seriedade do Animal(2009-10); Uns e Outros (2008); A Improbabilidade da Certeza (2006); Larvar (2006); Primeira Impressão (2005).
