Although Mozaffari has experienced both realist and modern styles, her works have mostly been abstract expressionist. Her works are known for their use of Persian culture symbolism. Influence of modern Iranian symbols and elements from the country's history are widely visible in many of her works.

Mozaffari's mixed media works include photographs of people and places that are printed on canvas and then painted over. In her Paris Révé collection, dome-top statues and sunlight in larger fields of Paris are punctuated by gold gestures. Pictures of real places are blurred and partially obscured and depict recollections. Her larger, bolder paintings add bright orange and darker blue to the artist's foggy palette.
