Sass studied visual art at the Danish Royal Art Academy in Copenhagen and at New York University (MFA) where she specialized in painting. Later she received her MA in Theory & Mediation from The Royal Danish Art Academy. She has recently started the ongoing exhibition project LOKAL (Local, with Tomas Lagermand Lundme), where they focus on how contemporary art can interact (locally) in the urban environment, creating new spaces of meaning and understanding. Her artwork has been included in several collections, private and public.
