Thematic of her paintings is mostly, and in the best strength expressed in her compositions bearing in mind acts, usually of large size, reaching even dimensions larger than 3 X 3 meters. They are followed by less portraits, and, very rarely presenting landscapes and further themes presented in smaller sizes. In her big compositions there are not details or true painting. On a contrary. They seem like huge colored krokies in which the unconditionally stroke is tolerable to a characterize dimension. Her strokes are broad and free, mark the shapes just slightly, so the painting exists on your own in color values and in a strong suggestion of movement. The symbolist vision is strongly confirmed in over dimensioned paintings, where tendencies of senses offers to observer lot of exchange approaches to the meanings. She was a zealot of “ULUS” and “LADA”
