Where is your inspiration coming from?
I get my inspiration from small things like spots of light or color, natural forms or touching some new material. My ideas start with a flash of thought, which makes me so anxious that I start experimenting with different materials to find a solution that suits my idea.
What are you trying to communicate in particular with your artwork?
It all starts with what I find interesting and what material speaks to me. I start by creating for myself and if someone finds my jewelry and wants it, it's just great!
Which material do you prefer to use and why?
Precious metals and of course, my favorite - wooden velvet, which is found in abundance in the forests of my country in Estonia. It is a fungus what crows on old trees. The fungus is a very capricious material and working with it is quite cumbersome but the result is worth it. No other wood gives such a wonderful result as this material. It is very light, transparent and unique.
How much value do you give to researching materials for your creations? Is it more important for you the process, or the final artwork itself?
Working with material is invaluable. This is the most exciting part of the process. It's like meeting a new friend. I enjoy experimenting with the new material every second. The time it takes to get acquainted with the material is enormous but I enjoy it more than making the finished product.
Is there an artist you prefer and why?
I consider the work of my teachers as an example - Piret Hirv, Eve-Margus Villems, Kadri Mälk.
Have you ever thought to collaborate with other artists, or you like to work on your own?
I love working alone, but I am considering to collaborate with other artist.
Where do you feel you are at with this last collection?
At the very beginning.
What have you discovered of yourself, are you satisfied?
I have always been very modest and timid. I am constantly courageous. I hope I will succeed someday.
Two words to describe your last artwork collection.
I constantly travel in my thoughts and dreams. I am fascinated by different landscapes and landforms. In my works also try to play with different surfaces, colors and shapes, creating minimalist fragments from different landscapes all over the (dream)world.
