She can do bobbin-lacing, weaving, sewing, textile utility object making and, she is good in organising her preparation for work.

In 2006, she was awarded a prize at the international competition Talents in Munich, Germany. She revived arts and crafts inspirations and put them into three table cloths using sublimation printing. This work represents a clear reference to traditions, embodied in pure forms and modern technologies. She transferred traditional folk golden embroidery from the Trnava region to clothing and created a visually strong motif. She was awarded the mention at the Rings in Water competition in 2008 for it. Her creative work is good for exhibiting as well as for wearing.
