She specialises in acrylic and oil painting and is known for her explorations and experimentations between Realism and Pop. Spirovski often conceptualises with portraits and fusing them with anatomical parts and deconstructing her subjects to skeletal features. An example of this is seen from her previous works “Memento Mori” – a series reflecting the concept of anxiety; her own and others.

What makes Spirovski a stand-out is the quality of her work. She uses a hybrid of traditional mediums combined with unconventional and surreal ideas, and a sophisticated understanding of colour, toning and lighting.  often enjoys painting at home or in her room as she isolates herself from the conventional art world and prefers to paint in her “sanctuary”.
