In 2006 she left Switzerland to study at the International Center of Photography in New York City. Since then she has been focusing on her personal work.

For the past four years she has been exploring the concept of visual music in collaboration with musicians and dancers, using a variety of tools, such as video, sculpture, photographs, drawings, sounds and movement.
