I grew up in Northern Europe, Estonia and started academic drawing and painting at a young age. My early artistic years went by quickly by studying at the art school. Summers were spent mostly in art camps, where I learned to stay outdoors for hours just to capture the moment in time. I learned to see the nature around me the way it is...this is when I realized that I wanted to become an artist.
I continued my studies at the Parson School of Design in New York where I got my Fine Arts degree in Communication Design. I also studied one year in France at the École Parsons a Paris. It was a wonderful opportunity for me as a young artist to experience what Paris, the Capitol of the Arts, was offering. After graduation I have been working professionally as an art director and illustrator. I also enjoying teaching art for children.
