The collection also contains some of her watercolor still life paintings. Her inspiration comes from many sources, and she fills travel notebooks with sketches, collages and vignettes that are later used as starting idea. Her great-artists influences are french Fauvism, german Expressionism of the early 20th century, post impressionism, cubism, Matisse, Kandisky, Klee, Braque, Cezanne, De Stael, Picasso, Vlaminck, Morandi, Hunterdwasser. Her painting 'Happy New Year' lies at the cusp of impressionism and expressionism while her painting 'Adding colors to life' combines abstract expressionist landscape with cubist inspiration. In many of her paintings, vibrant colors, bold shapes and creative contrasts catch the viewer eye and trigger interest. Earlier work conveys a peaceful balance through soft tones and delicate harmony.
