I am born in Estonia and lived almost always here(except during my studies in Oslo and Amsterdam). My grandfather at mother’s side was Polish(deported to Estonia while he was very young). Everyone else in my family seems to have Estonian roots.

Now I am together with Hungarian man, who is also artist and we have a little daughter together. She took most of my time during last two years, but now she started in the day care.

The best part of the day I like is an evening. I often sit in front of our kitchen window in the darkness. My friend Berit managed to capture me in the ambient I love. I am very much evening person. This quiet time cools me down and inspires me. At my last exhibition I was dealing with homesickness- I liked  what John Cheever wrote in, The Stories of John Cheever (1978)

Homesickness is… absolutely nothing. Fifty percent of the people in the world are homesick all the time You don’t really long for another country. You long for something in yourself that you don’t have, or haven’t been able to find.

Most of the time after the graduation I have shared my time between making jewellery and working for art related institutions. In the beginning of October I start working again for the Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design. I am also one of the organisers of Tallinn Applied Art Triennial.

It seems I am always longing after more time for the jewellery, something I can’t get enough ever.
