Working mainly as an organizer of intercultural projects, in the years 1981-2021 she lived in the capital of Austria, Vienna. Graduated in art history at the prestigious University of Vienna. Founded the contemporary art gallery kunst#stücke, operating in the very center of Vienna from 2008 to 2011, when she decided to go completely out into the world and focus on the projects: art on tour and art for peace. Currently, she is mainly involved in projects in the Kashubian Switzerland region, in Poland.

Since 1999 she has cooperated in Poland among others, with the national museum in Gdańsk and Cracow, the Sopot Auction House in Warsaw, Cracow and Gdańsk. In the years 2016 to 2018, three times in a row, she was the initiator and the main organizer of a large cultural event entitled Austrian Days in Pomerania. In 2017, she organised meetings in Poland on Art as an Investment. Recently, she was involved in the establishment of an international fair presenting the contemporary art work of artists along the historic Silk Road.

Currently, due to the difficult pandemic situation, from 2020 she started writing and promoting books on intercultural dialogue. In addition, pedagogical work with children and youth is very important for her, so she would like to develop this engagement in the near future, especially in the country side of Poland.
