Since 1997 the artist’s work changed as she began to use limited palette. Because of this the works became more sophisticated and refined. Backgrounds are also changed and become more complex and differ from the usual associations.
Her beauties turned into angels with sensuous character and emotion. It’s especially manifested in the works of "Nostalgia" and "Pearl" (1997).
Since 2003 the works of artist changed again – we can see mood of contemplation and self-absorption. Her character strives for far and more sublime world. We can be traced in the work "Paradise.
