She holds an MA in video (Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Ljubljana) and an MA in Interface Cultures at Kunstuniversitaet, Linz, Austria.

Her works often contain elements of humour and irony, and her productions are not limited to one media. Over the recent years, she has been interested in documentaries; she produces videos for theatre and participates in co-authored collective projects.
