Shortly about artworks I have been painting since I was 2-3 years old, I love to paint with colors, experimenting with graphics. My name is Veera, I was born in Russia, Sredneuralsk 27.07.1984. I also studied in art school, music school and gymnasium. At the moment I am living with my husband in Oulu and I am very glad to organise a private exhibition here.
About me Born in 1984, Russia. Lived in Estonia. At the moment I live in Finland. I paint with acrylic, gouache, watercolours and markers. Usually I paint with brushes, but sometimes I use hands. My favourite art style is expressionism. My favourite artist is Claude Monet. I have seen his works in Louvre, France - and they absolutely broke my heart. I paint only if I feel great inspiration. Usually inspiration lasts for a couple of months, then I do not feel like painting and I have about a one year break. But still painting is a must for me. That is why I always have my colours ready in case inspiration will come (one never knows when it will).
When I paint I usually put on some music and then I go into some kind of trance, very high feelings. I feel myself on the seventh cloud, this feeling of creating is undescribable. You can feel this feeling when you do something you love a lot.
