Current Residence: Ireland, nationality: estonian
Born 1975 in Tallinn, Estonia. Thea-Iren lived there until 2011 when she moved to Ireland for a job offer. Thea has been painting occasionally through-out the years as a hobby.Recently she dwelled into it more seriously. She started out in 2016 with series of POP Art style paintings but found naïve style to be more enjoyable and mirroring her personality and sense of humor. She draws inspiration from folk art, patterns, fabrics and tribal art. She chooses her colors carefully to compliment each other. Pictures are mostly showing alternate, better, bright and colorful world, where fantastic animals and creatures are flourishing. Thea considers her mission accomplished when viewer has a smile on their face. Enjoy!
