Chiara legata alla cultura underground e al body horror. Amante del corpo in tutte le sue forme. Ispirata dal cinema straniero, dell’arte e dalle personalità. Mi piace sperimentare nuove sensazioni e provare a comunicarle attraverso qualunque tipo di strumento o tecnica, attualmente fotografia, video e montaggio sono i modi di espressione che sento più vicini.
