I was born on December 11, 1971 in Zestaphony, Georgia. In l988 -1991 I studied at Mosse Toidze Technical School of Art, Textiles Department. During this time, I knitted Pirosmani's "Deer," "Fisher," "Sheep," as well as my own compositions "Expectation," and "Shatili," in the form of decorative rugs. My diploma work was composed on a tapestry (gobelin) - "Georgian Woman," size 1.40 m. square.

In 1994 I entered Tbilisi State Academy of Art, specializing in textiles. While studying, I took part in the folllowing exhibitions: "The Student's Exhibition" in 1997, "The Young Artists Exhibition" (called "Memento Mori") in 1998-99, and "The Christmas Exhibition," which took place at the International Center of Art. My course work was the following: "The Decorative Rug," "The Decorative Carpet," and in small textiles, "Expression."

Panels made using The Batical technique are the following: "Umbrella in the rain," "Four Seasons," "Flowers," and "My studio." I also made the tapestries (gobelins) called "Winter," "Sweethearts," "Fish," "Bamboos."

In 1999 my diploma work made on tapestry (gobelin) "Autumn motive" was named as the best work of the year. It is made using different difficult techniques with different kinds of knots.
