Life and work
She is described as "highly figurative artist and a subtle observer of the world around her and interpersonal relations". Critics wrote her works are "deep personal stories, characterized by a deliberate choice of subjects and carefully selected visual means". For health reasons however she abandoned printmaking after 1988 and devoted herself to drawing and painting. A large part of her life was also teaching, travelling, journalism and translating.

In 1985, her graphic art titled "The Call" ("Klic" in Slovenian), which she created in 1978, has received a silver award in Paris.
