About Me.

I have always been an image maker. Drawing and painting were activities that furnish some of my earliest childhood memories. I attended art school in Estonia since I was six years old, where I studied painting and drawing. After graduating from high school in Estonia, I studied art and photography in Finland and America.

My choice of subject comes from a place of intuition and is fuelled by a desire to stop the moment of time or create a new moment. I use modern technology and traditional techniques or a mix of old and new in my work. I am always exploring ideas, materials and processes. My work doesn't follow a set style; rather a freedom to change and to create new tonalities of color, space and feeling. My work includes the creation of fine art prints in alternative processes such as hand-colored images.

Also I am passionate about psychology. I have a Masters Degree from the University of Michigan. I am currently working as a psychotherapist and I am also a part time artist. Since, I have spent a lifetime pursuing all things creative I bring this collective experience to my work as a psychotherapist specializing in addiction and trauma counseling. I believe that both areas of my work compliment each other.
