" I've lived close to the sea my whole life. I was born and raised in Estonia, on the shores of the Baltic, and then moved even further north, to Sweden. In a bid to escape the frigid, long, dark Nordic winters, I moved to Ireland a decade ago, and made Dublin my home. I started painting inspired by the beauty of Dublin Bay, by the indescribable quality of its light as it changes through the day, by its enchanting seascapes. In my paintings, I weave my own universe of emotions with a study of my environment, creating purely abstract works and surreal landscapes with bold colors and strokes. Color has become my main language, and it is the one I speak best."
