In creating, the biggest ally is intuition… I have heavily relied on it every second spent in front of a canvas. Intuition, emotion and feeling- a very personal and intimate process. A way of healing. A way of sharing your moment of “right now”. Sharing feelings. Expressing what lingers and fatigues to come out in words and other physical manifestations. As a person that has zero patience, painting is the only activity to completely get lost in, switch off the noises and pass hours.
I believe my works reflect the constant inner search and all different sides of what lives inside of me, a vortex of emotions and changing of all. Fears, love, anger, hope and moments to breath. As the inside shifts the paintings change. Abandoned buildings, faces, feelings, nature, sun, stars, angels, all this world is extremely inspiring hence the difference and seemingly hectic choices of subjects.
Using brushes, palette knives, hands and fingers gives the possibility to feel paint on many levels. Sliding a hand across fresh paint is one of the most satisfying feelings. Just like the smell of it, it is enough to bring a smile or a tear to a face.
I am a starting, self-taught and learning artist, originally from Estonia, Tallinn that is now based in Veneto, Italy. I first started drawing and painting back in school, thanks to my arts teacher, and attended her classes. That love stayed in my heart throughout life, doodling, drawing, sketching, going back and forth, painting a lot then not enough. Dreaming of having a possibility to have my own exhibition one day. Last year brought a change, something shifted... everything shifted, and I haven't been able, nor had the desire, to put down brushes and colors, or at least a pencil.
