During that time she had the opportunity to discover the famous Art Institute in Chicago, which she visited every time on stop-overs in the city. The more and more the interest in artistic work grew. Reber decided to turn her passion for art into profession.

Reber loves spending time outside. Her paintings are often inspired by outdoor ventures, by the colors she sees in daily life and how things are arranged in nature. Reber is primarily an abstract painter, she works with different mediums although oil is her most preferred one. In her abstract work Reber builds forms and colors and knits them together through layers of accumulation.
