Her oeuvre, from around 1980, is of a remarkable allroundness. Her works range from a strong and impressive realism, reminiscent of the post-impressionist Pechstein, to the subtle linework of Dufy.
The first period in Portugal inspired her to paint landscapes and portraits of country people in their natural setting, often working in de fields and vineyards.

Currently, her paintings are more in the style of her early work and is the woman figure the main subject of her paintings.
Her paintings are a celebration of exuberantly bold colours, which undoubtably provide the viewer with feeling of happiness. Her colours are so clear and strong that they provide a recognizable signature.
Since 1980 Anka van Dorp had exhibitions in the Netherlands and Portugal.
