MY STORY & VISION

I am an Estonian artist based in London, UK. As a qualified musician, art and culture have always been an integral part of my life and something that continue to inspire me. I get inspired as much from my travels as well as everyday life. Being a regular visitor to museums and galleries, I am fascinated with artworks in different styles and mediums.

 

In 2019, the unimaginable happened when we had to say goodbye to our 2 year old son Frank who died suffering from a very rare type of leukemia. This really changed my attitude to life. I went on a journey to search for myself on a much deeper level, reaching out for books that had a meaning in the past and finding other gentle ways to deal with this enormous  loss. From poetry to art, to actively participating in fundraising activities, the energy and inspiration coming from the thoughts of my son, I hope to build a legacy for him. Therefore, I am committed in donating at least 50% of my profits to research into rare type of pediatric T-cell leukemia from any artwork sold.

 

My artwork is held in private collections in the US, Australia, UK and other parts of Europe.

 

My painting ‘Balance is in Our Mind’ was shortlisted by the UKs largest and most prestigious the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2020 and was exhibited at the Willis Museum & Sainsbury Gallery and the Mall Galleries in London in February 2021 which however was cancelled due to the global pandemic.

 

My artwork allows me to communicate my way of thinking and my mindset. I am hoping that just like people being influenced by famous quotes and relying them during challenging times, my aim is to achieve that through my artwork.
