In her paintings he takes on various issues regarding human and the social and cultural space in which he functions on a daily basis. She presents it in a metaphorical way. By using various systems of geometric forms, she tries to create the illusion of three-dimensional, abstract space. The works feature varied painting matter - a juxtaposition of fragments of a glaze underpainting and a carbon sketch with a dense texture of paint. The images are characterized by a narrow range of colors.
