The author works in the New Media technique, and uses sophisticated techniques to create the final product. Photos, scanning, and computer processing are just some of the tools that the author uses. Iryna is now experimenting with lines: straight, parallel, intersecting. She is also driven by the symmetry and regularity of the round shapes. As an artist, Iryna is constantly experimenting with textures, shapes, and different combinations.
In poetry, she reveals the theme of eroticism and sexual relations. Poetry helps Iryna to see through her heart, even with her eyes closed. Writing helps her to reset the brain when it is overloaded. She has a talent for seeing beauty in ugliness, and purity in dirt.
Iryna is convinced that nothing in the world can be named absolutely disgusting. People just need to look at things from a different angle, and she is there to help them do it with her art.
