From 2003 to 3007 she engaged in articles of clothing (painting on clothes and accessories). This work was displayed in the magazines VIMADONNA (30-03-2003), COSMOPOLITAN (10-2003), on NET TV in the talk shows “10-2” with Rika Vayanni and Popi Tsapanidou (07-0-2003) “Pandemonium” and on South Greek Television NET “In Faces” with Rebecca Sgourea (15-06-2004).
