Intro
My jewellery is there to communicate. That doesn´t mean that you have to communicate back.
 

What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
I think we always act from the platform we have background, experience, cultural valuation. We can embrace or reject but still the artistic intentions grow from that. Choice of material can be more local but themes and interpretations are more universal.


What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
Well as for all kind of art, my jewellery is there to communicate. Doesn´t mean that you have to communicate back.


Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work?
There is a story behind every piece I do, hopefully this is present.

The last work, book, film, city that has moved me was...
In periods I read a lot, fiction from all over the world and learn a lot. Just finished Ghana must go by Taiye Selassi. Great!! And a book by Belarusian author Vasil Bykau Карьер though in Swedish.


Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?
Mostly I find information on internet and follow from time to time debates on communities as Klimt02 and AJF.


Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
I am fortunate to have my studio in a space with many artists studios of all kind. It has lead to different collaborations which means a lot of discussions.
