She is also an active organiser and curator in the field of contemporary art being the founder of an art colony in Slovakia. In the autumn of 2015 her recent works were on view in the The Museum of Hungarian Culture in Bratislava.
Her works can be found in collections internationally for instance in Berlin, Samorin or in North-Carolina. Her subtle, black and white works are characterized by a special technique resembling the making of photograms. Her works show surreal scenes with many symbols, out of which the mostly used one is the traffic sign. She often designs her exhibitions of photos, photograms, digital interactive installations into religious space. Her latest works are colourful, but similarly to the previous ones, all are made with a unique technique. These works are on the verge of painting and printing and are also installed in lightboxes. All her works carry high level of spiritualism integrating religious elements as well.
