Sasportas makes art that deals with nature, with the influence of Japanese traditional art. Her famous foldable fan series combine abstract forms with spiritual content inspired by Japanese art shaped as a large Japanese foldable fan. In 2013 she presented a solo exhibition at the Israel Museum called "Seven Winters". The exhibition combined the museum's space with sculptures, works of art and drawings of various sizes. The exhibit featured black and white landscape paintings of a forest and a swamp, while bringing up to discussion the subjects of conscious and subconscious. The use of a variety of techniques in her art and their presentation in one space creates an intense sensory experience for the viewer. Her artworks are adaptable and respond to the architecture of the structure in which they are displayed in.
