Her working methods switch between documentary, fictional staging and video installations. The films often revolve around everyday situations, and with characters that seemingly spontaneously reflect on everyday conditions or the situation that the film itself requires.

Sandell Billström has studied at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and has exhibited at Göteborg Konsthall, Supermarket Art Fair, Box Gallery and Färgfabriken.
