I only became a composer in the course of my musical career. But the will to be creative is taking up more and more space in my life. Similar to my paintings, my compositions are also different in style and I am fascinated by the variety of musical means of expression as well as the possibilities of using them. In the meantime, I have mainly written works for violoncello and chamber music in a wide variety of formations, but my compositions also include orchestral works. In June 2014, my saxophone quartet "Sax for four" received an award at the Carl von Ossietzky Composition Competition, in July 2014 the harpsichord piece "One Day" from "harpsichord xxi" was selected for publication in an anthology (published by Bellmann Musik in December 2014) and Christopher Redgate selected my "Concerto a tre" for oboe solo for his recital in October 2014 at the Austrian Culture Forum London's call for scores. In January 2015, the 1-minute piece "Cut off" for solo violin was selected for a concert in New York as part of the "Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame" and in September 2016, my piece "Dialogue" for cello and guitar was awarded 3rd place in the duo category of the International Timo Korhonen Composition Competition. Also in September 2016, "Mittsommer" for solo violin was selected for a concert as part of the "Vox Feminae" festival in Israel. 2018 Prizewinner of the 1st Austrian Women Composers' Competition, world premiere as part of "Wien modern".

Performances at home and abroad (Europe and USA), commissioned compositions and recordings on CDs document her compositional activity.
