Life is a pure flame, and we live by an invisible sun within us. (Sir Thomas Brown)
Photographer / Designer
Born in the summer of 1975
I have graduated from Pärnu Vocational School as an artist-decorator and worked as a city designer in Pärnu. This was followed by the studies of civil engineering in Tallinn, University of Applied Sciences, and working at the Ministry of Finance. In a blink of emotion, I turned my life and moved to the United States. I studied professional photography at the New York Institute of Photography. And now, lifelong passion has become my work.
“A seven-year life on the other side of the ocean has shaped my view of the world. Wall-to-wall experience in personal life and work and tremendous self-discovery have shaped me into who I am at the moment. We are all shaped through the lessons of our lives! Passion for photography has given to me by my mother, with whom I spent long nights in our small kitchen under a red light. At that time, I was fascinated by the image magically appearing on photo paper.
After returning to Estonia, I and my husband have become happy parents of two children. They are my inspiration. The most important goal in life is to be happy. We shape our lives through our experiences and become better by loving the freedom to be ourselves. ”
I am a founder of REKfoto, teach photography at the Tartu University Pärnu College, and have thought product photography at Tartu Folk High School.
