“The poet enjoys the incomparable privilege of being able to be himself and others, as he wishes”.
I believe in the power of imagination.
I believe in dreams, magic and archetypes. I like the idea of an artist as a storyteller.
So I am telling the fairytales where archaic becomes contemporary, existential turns aesthetic, subtle seems intense, earth meets heaven. Spirituality as well is an important part in the dream net, weaving its cloth out of the strands of faith.
The most interesting part of art is always full of interpretations and hidden meanings, of faith and love. I never construct my jewelry as equations, they just reveal themselves to me – intuitively, subtly, mysteriously.
And I believe that art is much cleverer than I ever can be.
