About

Profile

I was born in Haapsalu, Estonia in 1994.

 

As an artist, I am interested in what is ambivalent and absurd. There is a gap between our body and mind as well as between our mind and the reality of the world. Art can be a bridge to overcome these gaps. 

When in contact with contemporary jewelry and objects one combines many different senses. This creates a space for unique feelings and experiences to happen. I always create emotionally and I try to express my ideas honestly using materials and techniques chosen because of the concept of the piece. I enjoy what I do!
