Sinanovska was already standing out in her childhood for her passion for art, which then led her to study art. Darkness and fire are the elements which characterize the memory of her childhood. Many years ago, when Macedonia was still part of the communist Republic of Yugoslavia and the doctrine of Tito characterized life, she often sat with her grandfather in the garden. Electricity had failed again and the grandfather made a great bonfire for the children, so they can warm themselves up next to the fire. He told stories of saints, spirits and religion. But more than his stories, Sinanovska was fascinated by the flames, the smoke and sparks of fire which told their own stories in her inner world. The fire, the old stories, the warmth and comfort of the very moment embossed many years later her painting in her studies. Today, the house of her grandfather has given way to a new estate and TV and Internet have replaced the stories they have been told as children. But in her paintings, she tries to keep the feeling and the experience for her but also for the viewer alive.
Her water paintings are in concordance to the fire paintings from 2012/2013. Also these paintings are heavily influenced by her memories and experiences. When she was a small child her grandfather used to take her in the early mornings down to the Vardar (lat. Axios), an old river filled with myths and stories of Macedonia and Greece.
The mist, which often floated like a wall, a dense and white-gray matter, over the water was Nizaket Sinanovska plunge into a different world where all thoughts melted into nothingness. Her grandfather was waiting quietly on the shore while fishing and there was just silence. This silence, the water, the light and the fog are the elements, which the artist tries to express in her multifaceted constellations.
