    In the gardens of Imagination
    we create ourselves and the surroundings
    which constantly change for our own amusement.
    The gift lies in noticing.

  • Three years ago I made a small cardboard forest diorama that I loved very much.
    Now it has grown into a life-sized forest (filled with ethereal creatures)
    for a collaboration with a stylish Estonian clothing brand Reval Denim Guild.
