Her pictorial universe is recognized for suggesting a poetic of sensations: her painting depicts different states of the soul, both sadness or death, as passion and emotion or fragility and beauty. Her style is easily recognizable as it is a work close to abstract expressionism. The works represent emotions, they are material paintings of intense colors, with figurative dyes, which are usually accompanied by an energetic stroke in the service of emotion.

Roglá: “I let myself be invaded by my surroundings, I am fascinated and saturated. It is such a physical process, that it possesses me almost involuntarily, forcing me to dump it in each work through painting or the medium that suits me. Then I draw conclusions. ”
