About

Welcome!

I am making flowers because I am celebrating life itself. There are so meany beautiful things! It is impossible to name all. I have not enough words to tell how wonderful this world is...so, I am making felted flowers :)

Beads and flowers are my artistic obsession. I have been creating beautiful things for almost 20 years now. Art is one of the ways that allows me to experience the wholesomeness of life. To be creative, to my mind, is the greatest fortune possible, and, sure enough, if you are mother, too (I`m lucky with two sons), then you can say that your life is joy and radiance saturated to share with others.

When create flower, the happiness I feel, I sense particularly.

My daily profession is connected with writing of articles and books, with photography…

My daily profession is connected with writing of articles and books, with photography and film making. In its turn, the design and creation of accessories and beautiful things allows me to express myself while fancy dreaming.

Every little flower or adornment is the possibility to touch something unique, beautiful and tender.

Sooner or later all things find their owners. I have observed that the right decoration of my make not only decorates the owner, but on the contrary – the person, to whom decoration becomes, makes it look more attractive.

I like to imagine that just these flowers blossom in the green fields of fairy world that are touched and warmed by golden sun after summer showers. In my country summer lasts only for some months. The rest of seasons are cool or very cold. Last winter it was exceptionally cold. Temperature dropped to – 30 C for a considerable time. The whole ground was dormant bellow a thick snow cover. But the trees blossomed in frost when the sun while setting colored them in pink and violet. It was a fairy as the light colored green meadows of the summer coming and flashing bright yellow, light blue, white, violet and pink colored blossoms.

Undeniably nature directly affects our culture. There is so much to reflect via creative activities. Possibly that is the reason why my country is so rich in handwork traditions. You can surely say that almost every female here knows one or more fancy-work techniques. Many skills are traditional and are mastered already in childhood. I am no exception either.

In Latvia ethnographic folk ornaments flower and floral motifs, thought stylized, repeat innumerable times.

Yet my flowers are rather distant from Latvian traditions and ethnographic work. The reason for this might be the fact that I have traveled a lot and have lived in southern countries for quite a long time. That is why I like to put vibrant colors and sophisticated combinations into my floral creations.

Every flower is unique. True, sometimes I share my flowers seemingly similar to one another in color tonality, but as the flower itself is formed by wet felting, then to form two completely alike (in the arrangement of fiber with the color pattern), even on order, is not possible.

Every item would be something special. Please, convo me for special orders.

New flowers would be added almost every second day. Visit my shop soon again!

Please read my shop policies's section.

Thank you!
