She currently holds a position as a lecturer at the Institut Supérieur des Beaux-Arts in Sousse. Zarbout is interested in subjects related to current affairs as well as the contemporary individual and society. Her achievements in plastic arts deal with the relationship to the other in its various aspects.

Behind her works, which seem to be playful, are hidden deep and daring themes.
