Valentina works in her unique technique, which she invented herself: she takes cardboard, applies a special base on it, then draws - as if engraving - an image on the dried layer of this substrate (etching technique). Then she clogs the strokes with paint, and finishes on top with pastels, oil and dry mixed. It is this technique that makes the works of Valentina Shoba unique and immediately recognizable.
