She had earned her MgA. Degree at Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague at 2006 after studying at Glass Studio under the lead of prof. Vladimír Kopecký, and Sculpture Studio with prof. Jiří Beránek.

Within her own art practice she often expresses the ideas through the material of glass and its diverse forms and techniques but doesn´t limit herself solely to this medium.
