Creative activism has always played a big role in my life. I was originally introduced to art activism through participation in online open calls and offline exhibitions of the «Worst Artists» Association. At one of these exhibitions, I have met my husband, artist Vladislav Novoshinsky in 2020, as well as a large number of other talented artists, Dmitry Shnurov, Veronika Polonskaya, Vadim Sobolev.

I have always admired the dedication of the members of this community and the desire to continue even after the door to one of the exhibitions was sealed by the police. A report about this was presented on Radio Freedom.
Later, I got to know other protest organizations, such as the Feminist Anti-War Resistance. In the fall of 2022, the FAS announced antiwartober, every day I took part in creative tasks, and after that, on Radio Freedom, I took part in a discussion of the project along with other participants in the flashmob. In January 2023, an exhibition of works by participants in this project was held in Berlin.

In February 2023 in Paris, I took part in an exhibition dedicated to the women victims of the Putin regime. The exhibition was attended by the mother of Alexandra Skochilenko, who is now facing a prison term of up to 10 years. My work presented at the exhibition was a portrait of Irina Tsybaneva. Irina laid an inscription on the grave of Putin's parents, for which she was subsequently taken into custody and was sentenced by the court to two years of probation.

At the moment I am working on the creation of a large NFT charity project of the World of Fragment agency together with the Podari Zhizn Charitable Foundation.

Since February 2023, I have been an illustrator for the Insider news agency on their twitter and Instagram pages
