CRITICAL REVIEW


        She works numerous orders for public monument galleries focused on illustrating the heroic figures of Romanian culture. She executes monumental decorations for hotel complexes (Mangalia). She oscillates between the formal real and expressive treatment which she assimilates from Medrea and the line purification which frees the material texture. In the Romanian folklore inspired compositions, she gives the impression of a somehow abstract and archaic sobriety. She also makes ceramic compositions.
