About Liina Veski

As long as I can remember I have been drawing, painting or creating something.
Art and creativity were always a part of my life and my paintings, drawings, jewelry, painted mugs, designed books, hats, pullovers and cutting boards can be found in Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Vietnam, Russia, New Zeland, USA, Australia, Thailand, Latvia etc.
Through life I have designed advertising posters, shop windows, book covers, woven pullovers and socks etc. I have also published a book about gemstones and written some articles for newspapers. Writing is another passion of mine.
I am a freelancer. I paint and started my own design brand called UNLA Design. I design and hand crafts jewelry, funny hats and wooden cutting boards with funny quotes. My designs and paintings are inspired by everyday life. And nature. And dreams. And music.

I do not have a certain style or theme because I do not like to put myself into frames. My paintings form if I start to paint. All my paintings and designs carry messages. I like to create things that make people happy. That make people smile. If we smile we can make the world a better place!



Education

Concentrated art studies begun for me in the second grade. In 1998 I graduated Tartu Secondary School of Art.
After graduating I lived a few months in Denmark meditating and having painting lessons from an local artist. I also found marketing very interesting and studied two years business administration specializing in marketing.
