"Everyone feels good and feels valued when they work with what they like best. I'm glad I have that opportunity. I can find inspiration and new ideas for Trollbeads when I read a good book or when I listen to music. I made "Christmas Morning" on a warm spring morning, when I suddenly thought of Christmas."
“I have tried a bit of everything from language studies to working with administration in an insurance company. I have only worked with glass for two years, but I have found that the greatest joy arises when one is happy with one's work. My inspiration comes while making glass. When I listen to a good audiobook, my thoughts begin to travel out into the world, through the lives of different people, and at that very moment, my hands create small miracles with glass. According to Shakti Gawain, the key to creativity is to try to do something, to take a chance and see what happens. My designs emerge spontaneously, just like when my favorite books take an unexpected turn. I admire the harmony of nature. I try to reconstruct a little bit of nature every time I design aquariums. I get inspired to make them more natural when I see the sea, ice, sky or rain. So my dominant color is blue.”
“The last 10 years of my life have been associated with artistic creativity. I have worked with textiles, silk, linen and wool, but the glass has opened up a new magical universe which is full of unique, special, constantly changing and mysterious shapes. I am incredibly happy that my glass beads can be admired in the company of other such professional designers.”
“Since childhood, I have been fascinated by people who can draw and paint. I think it's one of the most interesting ways to express oneself - even though I've never tried it myself. When I started producing glass beads, I found that this was how I could express myself - and reflect on my thoughts and feelings. What I like best about making glass is the ability to create some completely unique color combinations.
A long time ago, I dreamed of experiencing a sunrise in the Alps with the sun's morning rays over the mountain tops. ”
“Ever since I was a child, I have loved nature and the changing seasons. I am a specialist in plants. When I started working with glass, I found that the beauty of nature could be expressed in the glass beads. Flowers are my main inspiration. The colors and shapes inspire me to make beautiful glass beads. ”
"In the past, I only thought that emotions could be expressed on paper or in music. A few years ago, however, I found a new creative path. When I started working, I found that I could develop something through glass. My inspiration can come from anything. You will need to be aware of your surroundings. Each glass bead speaks for itself, it has its own story and its own personal expression that reflects my thoughts and feelings. ”
