Besides painting, she created illustrations for children’s books and magazines and also worked in cinematography.
Her paintings are described as intimistic. At first she painted still life, landscapes, figures and portraits. Later she was moving towards simplifying forms, geometry and moderate abstraction. At times she used collage and experimental materials techniques ~ Wiki.
