Molecular painting is the title used to describe her method of painting. Indeed, her acrylic paintings are articulated around several main axes: the density and ratio of materials, the interdependences of substances, movements present in nature, the free expression of textures and the effervescence of the creative process.
Visually and technically, her painting is close to the ancestral technique of Marbled Paper or Ebru (Registered as a UNESCO Intangible World Heritage).
