Her works have been exhibited internationally since 1996, when the artist was only 16 years old.

Brike's main interest lies in the portrayal of strong narratives, for which she mostly turns to the traditional medium of oil painting on canvas. She has also explored other techniques such as drawing, animation, sculpture, installation and digital art. At the center of Brike's art lies the core of the human being and the state of its soul - dreams, longing, love, pain, transience, growing up and the associated self-discovery. The artist herself describes her work as a "poetic-visual autobiography".
