Elaborated in direct connection to the natural ambient or the architectonic elements, the sculptural shapes make an effort to adapt to the space, though without breaking the expressive tensions that animate the inner being of the artist. The flux of expression carries, in some works, cultural echoes from the Antiquity (Athens’s vestiges) or from the Baroque (the cycle Drapes). Her interest in the patrimonial values is revealed in some researches and comparative studies, like those concerning the morphology of the wood art in Maramureş.
