Her paintings combined the traditional art with contemporary art, including techniques deriving from late 17th century northern Europe. The traditions of Paul Cézanne, and those of the Far East are present in her works, and yet her works are considered to have a contemporary view of nature. Her works are considered a reflection inner insight and a perception of the soul of nature. She never intended to paint the details, but instead to create a symbol and vague understanding of nature, so that they would have the feeling of nature in them.
