The artist paints her works in bright, mellow tones. She uses in painting her personal technique methods such as “glaze” (covering a dry layer of tempera paints with a thin layer of semitransparent or transparent paints or lacquer in order to enrich coloring and get multitude of color tints) and rich usage of gold paint for decoration a box with ornaments. On the average it takes her a month to finish painting a miniature.
Tatyana Vladimirovna supposes her works are notable for mellow coloring, thin and detailed painting, skillfully painted lace architecture, precision of drawing, interesting themes and high quality of execution.
Works by such famous Palekh artists as N.M. Zinovyev, I.M. Bakanov, P.D. Bazhenov, T.I. Zubkova and also painting of the great Russian artists I.Ya. Bilibin and V.M. Vasnetsov had a great influence on the artist’s creativity.
