My aim was to do an interactive work where everyone could feel themselves as a real housewife. I used for that a washing bowl to where I did put in some kitchen towels to soak in water. On every towel was painted some kind of image, which were showing different kind of views that a housewife could see during a day doing houseworks. The point was if someone wanted to see the paintings, they had put their hands in a bowl, grasp the paintings and hold them above the water. Then this person would look like a housewife. Furthermore the activity is giving an unusual nostalgic feeling and making you feel like washing clothes.

My paintings are mainly about feminism, narcissism and irony.|
I like to mix my feminist critique with the ironic presentation of the classical women’s roles in our society. At the same time I'm willing to take a role being "a stereotypical woman" and show the problems coming with it to a wider audience.
Painting is something that gives me power. For me, it is indescribably personal, how while painting can capture your innerness, and at the same time it has an ability to have a great openness about it, as others can easily read all my thoughts from paintings.
Paintings has been sold around twenty to Estonia; and aswell to Sweden, Germany, Spain, The Netherlands, Italy, United Kingdom, Brazil and Canada.
