INTERIOR DESIGN FIBER ART
INSPIRED BY NATURE
As our everyday life can be so hectic, I love focusing on simple things around us and
discovering new aspects of life.
My biggest source of inspiration is nature with all its beauty, richness and variety.
I have always wondered how nature can create the most perfect textures, surfaces and patterns around us. Sometimes you need to stop to look deeper and realise all the connections.
While studying in art college, I came familiar with traditional textile techniques like weaving, machine knitting, silk painting, tapestry weaving etc.
Over the last years I have specialized in felting and free hand embroidery.
The more I felt, the more I fall in love with it.
The more I want to discover, experiment and learn about it.
I love working with different felting techniques as felt can be so versatile ranging from
the finest silk scarves to bulky fabrics.
Therefore at the moment it is the best medium for experimenting with fiber, textures and surface design.
Over the years I have also been teaching a range of different workshops and courses - mainly in different techniques of felting but also in other art & craft areas.
As I am passionate about the materials and fiber used in my work,
I have my own small flock of finewool sheep.
I live and work in Estonia, in a countryside family farm with my husband and our three children.
Living in the countryside and working in my barn studio offers me plenty of inspiration for my work.
My work contains fiber art wall hangings, wearable art, accessories and range of home decor products.
I have been selling art work through my Etsy shop to all over the world.
During last few years I have been focusing more on creative process of interior textiles, wall hangings and exhibition work.
I am also a member of International Feltmakers Association and Finnish Felt association Filtti.
If you love nature, felting and textiles, I hope you will find some inspiration from my work.
