In artistic creation, she experiments with various colours, techniques and materials. Deconstruction and reconstruction of materials into new forms and layering are the techniques that give her the most freedom and she uses them most often in my work. The original inspiration for the collection of works and the tapestry is found in nature, which for the author is a place from which she constantly takes elements and simplifies and abstracts them. And in further research, she additionally connected the design with the collection Flowers of Evil, whose verses interspersed with positive and inspiring feelings she tried to convey as well as possible in the collection. All the works from the collection she compared with each other, upgraded and hollowed out until a moment occurred in which that work radiated the positive that she wanted to convey to the observer. Made of hand-printed artificial leather, the Segment II tapestry was made as part of the final work and explores the link between Art Deco and contemporary art through colour and modularity. In the context of design, modularity refers to the degree to which parts of a product can be reconfigured, removed, or added. Modular textiles, the technique with which the tapestry is made, allow for multi-purpose use and easy shape transformation, and endless design possibilities based on different variations. The final idea was to create a work for the interior decoration of a space that a person can adapt to himself and his space by assembling and disassembling different parts.

Deconstruction and recombination of materials into new forms and layering are the techniques that give her the most freedom, and she uses them most often in her work.
