Central to Triin’s work is the concept of looking, noticing, being present and being absent, whereby one can lead to the other. She focuses on how objects can dissappear from our attention, and how they behave when reappearing.

Triin completed her Masters in Jewellery  at The Estonian Academy of Arts in 2019. She has been on exchange studies at Hiko Mizuno in Tokyo, Trier University in Idar-Oberstein and in Imatra, Finland. Her works can be found in several private collections and she was awarded the Marzee graduate prize. She currently works at her studio in Tallinn.
