She was born in the Greek city of Kastoria in 1943. She is the granddaughter of the Kastorian voivode, Nikola Dobrolitski. She was evacuated to the city of Tetovo in the People's Republic of Macedonia in 1948 as one of the many political refugees of the Greek Civil War. She finished a law degree at Skopje University. She then worked as a lawyer in Skopje. She is a member of the Association of writers from Macedonia.[1][2] She soon became a leading Jurist in the Socialist Republic of Macedonia.

In 1990 she became a founding member of the Macedonian political party, Movement for All-Macedonian Action (MAAK).[3] She was a supporter of Tito Petkovski's bid for the Presidency of the Republic of Macedonia in 1999. In 2006 she ran election in the Skopje and Kumanovo regions as part of the New Social Democratic Party.[4] In 2006 there was a controversy between Kunovska and Vlado Bučkovski which involved claims of Bulgarianisation.
