at a large exhibition "Russian Abstraction, 20th Cntury" in Russian Museum in St.Petersburg.
Worked as an artist designer at the Silk Factory in Moscow That work
enriched her knowledge of means and technique (plasticity of material, rhythm, shape and color). This experience brought her to abstraction that forms the amount of an artwork in more expressive way than academic rules do. Abstraction helps her to avoid pressure of genre on the image. It allows the unvisible to be seen through the visible.
