From the foreword of Zuzana Janečková for the book "Pest": "In her work she deals with the fight between good and evil, melancholic depressions, stress, phobia, different ways of dying, schizophrenia, apocalyptic visions. Her comics-like and drawing simplification uses black humour, but in their content reacts on important problems, like genetic mutation, social changes and related health issues of individuals."
