According to the artist, she does not have a specific plan or sketches before starting work. The first and most important point is the choice of paint and their combination with each other, as well as any improvised materials that are suitable «in the mood» can be used. Free carelessness manifests itself in «mistakes» and stains, which become the main elements of the Sofa’s work.

«My works are a search for my own artistic language through random lines and spots, a jumble of details, layering and chaos of color.»
