She later received a scholarship to study visual arts in Khabarovsk College of the Arts, the only female student in her class. Throughout her formal training and experience, she developed her own style that brings a sense of realism to her pieces. By balancing the hues of realistic colors that nature provides and sculpturing texture she can convey movement and life into her canvases. She learned to paint in every medium, sculpt with clay and carve wood.
