After this Mori finally settled in the French capital in 1972 she enrolled the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts where she continued her studies until 1975.
In 2004 as a scholar of the MADI Museum in Dallas she made a lot of works for the institute. One of these is a huge three piece mural she made for the opening ceremony of the Museum.
