The basic theme of her painting is the love of life. In this way, snapshots are taken against the backdrop of collected experiences and experiences from everyday life, the banal and condense into stories. The works address the manifold aspects of human being, their essence and their relationships and ambivalences to and among each other. The environment, the image space can not simply be assigned to stereotypes, abstract and representational elements permeate the pictorial space and in this field of tension open the view to inner and outer experience.
A powerful color scheme, the use of various stylistic devices and techniques, as well as the dynamics of the graphics create new multi-layered stories with details that are hidden from others. The works are created serially in mixed media (acrylic, oil, wood or linocut, collage, painting and drawing).
