I'm a Finnish designer of Russian
origin graduated from the University of Industrial Arts in Helsinki (UIAH) with a Master of Arts (MA) in Fashion and Textile Design in 2002.
Since 2005 I moved to Rome where I set up my business and devote myself to the creation and production of textiles for home furnishings and fashion accessories.
My creative work is based and inspirited of these three cultures.
I try to create a modern vision of the house, where the atmosphere, harmony and well-being are important elements in addition to functionality.
I combine the old and the new, based on personal emotions inspired by the deep contact with nature, each design has always a background story, mood, memory and soul of a landscape or a place in the world.
It 's my unique way to reevaluate reality and then to express and underline individuality.
In all my work in textile design is always present artistic expression combined with the functionality that is why my job requires a cross-sectional research of materials and techniques.
My products are the result of a careful study of textiles and traditional techniques, creating a new atmosphere of the interior, where the design is combined with traditional craftsmanship.
