“What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice and all things nice.”

This song from childhood has been my main source of motivation for me while making this artwork. I have grown up in in the most beloved town in Estonia – Viljandi. A place with a safe environment and in a loving home. I began to feel the difference in my upbringing at an early age. I remember once I got a birthday gift, which contained a bucket, a mop and various equipment for cleaning. I have two older brothers and we always had different rules. I often did not understand why it was not appropriate for me to stack logs, but instead, I had to help my mother in the kitchen with dishwashing. This series “Made in Sugar” has progressed in the last couple of years. The paintings are in large-format and colourful. They are made in collaboration with my mother’s fabric and sewn up with a mother-in-law’s thread. Paintings are 1.5 x 2 meters in size. They are covered with sugar that has been hardened with different mediums.

„Millest on tehtud väikesed tudrukud? Suhkrust ja jahust ja maasikavahust.”

See viisijupp lapsepõlvest on olnud mu peamine allikas, mis on ajendanud mind tegema antud töid. Ma olen üleskasvanud üheksateist aastat kõige armsamas linnas - Viljandis. Äärmiselt turvalises keskkonnas ja armastavas kodus. Kasvatamis erinevusi hakkasin ma tundma juba varases eas. Ma mäletan, kui sain kord sünnipäevaks koristamiskomplekti, mis sisaldas ämbrit, moppi ja erinevaid harju. Mul on kaks vanemat venda ning meile kehtisid pidevalt erinevad reeglid. Ma tihti ei mõistnud miks mulle ei olnud kohane puid laduda, vaid pidin hoopis ema aitama köögis nõudepesuga. Antud seeria „Tehtud suhkrus” on mul küpsenud paari aasta jooksul. Maalid on suureformaadilised ja värviküllased. Nad on valminud koostöös minu ema kodust pärit kangastega ja kokku õmmeldud ämma niidiga. Maalid on suurustega 1,5 x 2 meetrit. Nad on ülekallatud suhkruga, mis on kivistatud erinevate meediumitega.
