"I really like the hands on experience that you get with sculptures, I don't like painting because I feel like you're not doing enough physical work; I never feel like a painting is finished while with sculpture I feel like I get to that stage where I'm done with it," Strakhova said.
Her work is abstract and her sculptures are mainly composed of wood with some incorporation of fused glass. She is currently working on some fused glass pieces which include some bowls and plates that are planned for display at the Bottega for the First Friday art walk. Her piece "Red Army" can be seen at the Bottega Art Gallery located at 707 S.E. Quincy on the third floor in Topeka. Strakhova plans to continue and expand her work and to attend grad school in the near future.
