She is the daughter of the music professor and director Iosif Boustintouis. She studied music at the Athens Conservatory and dramatic art at the School of the National Theatre. A self-taught painter, she started painting in 1952 and presented her work for the first time in 1959. She traveled a lot in Europe, and in particular Spain, which became her second country, for study and information. Her work became known through her participation one-woman shoes and group exhibitions, including the Alexandria Biennale in 1974. In 1987 a retrospective exhibition of her work was organized at the National Gallery.
Pop renders and records with sensibility, honesty and warm colours a world that is being lost in Plaka, Aegina and also in Lavrion, Nafplio, Hydra, Galaxidi and other places of Greece, which she loved so much, or of Spain, where she lived so long. Having kept a distance from modern movements and styles, she created her own world, full of freshness and nostalgia, without resorting to sweetish representation and picturesqueness.
Narrow streets with shops, picturesque squares with their cafes, backyards, favourite and familiar places, full of motion and life, are rendered with a dense composition, bathed in light and colour, where the recording of even the smallest detail proves her faith in optical truth, which is enhanced by the explanatory inscriptions which she writes herself at the lower part of the painting, stressing even more her spontaneity and her original, flowing expression.
