In batik art Alla found for herself an optimal form of the creative self – expression. She enjoys primarily the fact that silk painting always has space for improvisation, that in batik technique one can solve not only formally decorative but also tasks of emotional and image character. Alla’s favourite topics in work are the theme of flowers, a female image. You also find the theme of “Adam and Eve”, still life and a landscape. In her work Alla strives to achieve the harmony of colour, form and image. Alla works in different techniques of textile painting: batik, silk painting, shibori, control painting and free painting.

She actually is looking through the multi-coloured batik filter she is creating onto multiple phenomena of life and human relations. And this often makes the life objects more attractive… And her life and professional path, as she calls it – „a silk way“.
