I come from a lineage of women who have been masters of different handcrafts. One of my grandmothers created housewares – towels, table runners, napkins – with intricate needlework and crochet details. She inspired me to mix different techniques of crafts to create truly unique masterpieces. My other grandmother knitted colorful socks and mittens that kept me warm during the cold Baltic winters. Form her I inherited the love for natural materials. My mother is a dressmaker. She was my teacher from the moment I could handle a needle and a thread. Her love for detail and superb quality has become the basis also for my creative endeavours.
