The First type of paintings is extremely cheerful, rich in form – different colours and finesse patterns – but also in the meaning; second one is meditative – by using only black and white and the topic chosen. Nurturing Mother, one of the most beautiful symbols of the catholic religion, additionally strengthened by reference to present days.
