Author researches in the field of applied geometry in visual arts, focused on 3D anamorphosis and use of constructive, optical-physiological and artistic perspective, as well as the application of geometrical optics and its visual effects. Since 2007 graduating from the Faculty of Applied Arts, University of Arts in Belgrade in 2007 Marijana has been teaching there (first as an assistant tutor and than from 2014 as a assistant professor). She researched and defended her PhD "Geometrical 3D models and methods of anamorphoses construction with the application in visual arts" at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Belgrade.

The inspiration for this work was the construction of an ellipse with two concentric circles. The illusion of space that I like when I draw this construction led me to the idea of making a model where parallel and orthogonal lines create visual conics. The symmetry of the composition emphasized the symmetry of the curve and directed the visual dynamics towards the center.
