"In her paintings she uses the symbols of the goddess and the spiral as elements of transformation.....The spiritual appeal of these paintings lay precisely in the abstract part. As Kandinsky says "The more abstract its form, the more clear and direct is its appeal." Transformation cannot be expressed in a material way; it cannot be materialized, so the artist uses abstraction in a metaphorical manner to convey her message. It is the void the emptiness, which is reflected as an important part of the composition of the paintings that draws us so close to the unconscious."

“Much of her inspiration has clearly been derived from the spiral motifs painted on the walls of the Hal-Saflieni Hypogeum. While representing what is familiar in Malta's cultural heritage these symbols provide tantalizing clues to their deeper significance, a hidden code just beyond the grasp of the viewer. They indicate a kind of literary narrative, implying as it were, a reading from top to bottom. They function as abstract components integrally tied to something larger and reveal a series of layers of hieroglyphs in which colour interaction develops a rhythmical magic.”
