I have always been fascinated by creating series of artworks. Maybe it's because of my studies and how I like when things are coherent and connected to each other somehow or I just like the patience behind the works.

Ilustis started as a final art project for my visual design course at uni. I quickly realized that I'd like create something that doesn't collect dust after the presentation, because that is what has happened to the previous course work.

I made 12 dotwork postcards. My very first artwork series. Each of the flowers represent their zodiac sign. I wanted to create something visually beautiful that doesn’t look cliché, so that’s why there’s no names or dates of the signs, just the flower and constellation sign.

Ilustis is an Estonian word, meaning flower and grace.
