As a painter, she has realized portraits, religious subjects, abstract compositions, and designs for theater costumes and sets. From the press in 1997: 'Akarova stands on the border of the abstract. She does not want to get rid of the tangible, but in her works certain properties are still abstracted. Yet she bases herself on a visible reality.' As a sculptor, she designed, among other things, portraits and busts in powerful, somewhat stylized design.  She also designed monumental work, among others for the cities of Brussels, Mons, Tienen. Was a member of the Fédération Féminine Artistique Belge. Work in the Museum in Ixelles, among others. Mentioned in BAS II and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (Piron)
