Romanas Artumo laboratorija – knyga apie moters ir vyro santykius. Kūrinyje keliaujama per susipažinimo situacijas, parodoma, kaip sukuriamas artimas ryšys. Vis dėlto knygos esmė – ne bendravimo įdomybės, o sąmoningas pagrindinės veikėjos Vitos suvokimas, kas vyksta su jos jausmais, poreikiais, vaikystės žaizdomis santykių metu. Knyga prasideda tuo, kad pagrindinė herojė baigia ilgai trukusią psichoterapiją ir dabar gana aiškiai mato su ja vykstančius procesus. Kai santykiuose jaučiasi skaudinama, kai vėl pakliūva į pažįstamas problemas, Vita savo vidiniame pasaulyje – saugioje erdvėje – bando pamatyti, kokie vidiniai veikėjai dalyvauja situacijoje ir sąmoningai juos reguliuoja. Jėgas ji atgauna meno pasaulyje, o sustiprėjusi grįžta į santykių frontą.
Kadangi šis romanas parašytas profesionalios psichologės, išnašose ji paaiškina, kaip vienas ar kitas psichologinis dėsningumas atsispindi romano situacijose. Artumo laboratorijos personažai paremti tikromis istorijomis, kurių autorė semiasi iš psichoterapinio darbo praktikos.
