''I was influenced by the ancient Dogon culture in Africa and the spirit of Latvian Suiti, inspired by the convincing character of a black woman in the modern world.
I write the stories of my world with lines, threads, colors and collages from personal and friends' clothes. My story about the little Baltic woman. They know from their own experience or from their mother's stories what it is to be interrogated by the KGB, what it means to mend kapron tights in "totalitarian times". She is passionate because that is her essence, that is who she is. She can peel potatoes and dream of love at the same time.
The question is - what is the world like now? Everything is changing. A huge amount of unnecessary things, which we do not use, has been produced....Traditions are falling apart, the war in Ukraine - once again shows and highlights the role of women in the world when aggression reigns.
Each girl then becomes a carrier of her nation's genetic code for the future. Every woman is love.''
