Norouzian's paintings are a combination of modern art and traditional Iranian motifs with bright colors such as vermilion reds with crimson, ultramarine blue or yellow and violet. Using golden and silver colors dates back to the time of miniatures, and portrays sun and water. Another aspect is geometric motifs such as circles, stars and Bote Jegheh, which is an abstract form of Shiraz Cyprus trees in wind. This form is used in fabrics and other decoration in Iranian culture. Calligraphy is the other main characteristic of her work. Sometimes it is used as collage and sometimes it is written by Norouzian. She enjoys Iranian calligraphy and using famous poems by Hafez and Molana in a form of Nasti-Alligh.
Norouzian's work is on permanent exhibition in the Galerie d'art le Palais Orientel, Montreux, Switzerland.
