The artist is nowadays a jewellery teacher at the Saimaa University of Applied Sciences, Imatra, and exhibits her work internationally.

Statement

Starting point for my working is in everyday life. I make long detours by listening stories on my way home on the bus, finding beauty in broken objects, walking in my surroundings where there is wood and forgotten man made marks on the landscape.
I carry camera and sketchbook with me all the time. I stop my walk on the street to take a snapshot of a moment which otherwise will be forgotten or unseen. I try to catch something I don’t understand or makes me troubled.
I collect other people’s photos, characters of people, make small stories of these with materials to my working table. This transfers into jewellery through a process-based working.
Sometimes jewellery is only about a small hole on a white paper. What remains is the memory of the act.
