The above paintings were painted by Reka between 2004 - 2011.

Her first paintings were a result of a Class Assignment in 8th grade, where she had to illustrate her impressions of the soundtrack from the Frida Kahlo movie using watercolor. Inspired by the assignment, Reka started painting to classical music (from the Classical and Romantic Era) such as Beethoven, Chopin and Mendhelsson. She uses a large scale of colors within her watercolor palette and paints abstract themes. Reka was often inspired by her surroundings and current life events, and represented them in a surrealist setting, along with very expressive dynamic brush strokes.

In high school Reka took advanced Biology classes thus Biology also inspired many of her paintings, using them as symbols, connecting the physical human body or body parts to human emotions. Such symbols included the neuron, embryos, the womb, heart, eyes, female bodyparts etc. the mere aesthetic use of the kidney and liver.

In her Senior year of High School she won the painting category of her High School Art Exhibition. 

During University Art Classes, painting realistic portraits was not Reka's strength thus she preferred using her impressions of the person and expressing them also in a surrealist way. Meanwhile continuously using modern day classical music like Yann Tiersen, Michael Nyman or Ludovico Einaudi, various nu-metal and rock band's music to express those. As her art developed she started adding more detail, more symbols suggesting  a personal hidden narrative to each painting.

Today Reka uses her art skills and ability to think outside the box in designs for film, and sometimes even functions as the hand - double of artist characters.
