MEET MIRJAM SIIM OF PORTUGAL
Mirjam Siim started using watercolours more on her frequent travels. Moving between different countries, it was a medium that fit in a backpack along with the rest of her life. She continues to prefer it because watercolours are sensitive and unpredictable for painting. They are good for improvising, allowing you to work in layers as you both fill large areas and add lots of details. While she considers herself a “creative person” more than an artist, she began her work in art at an early age, and studied at both Tartu Art College in Estonia and Porto University in Portugal. Mirjam’s favourite colours became self-evident when she realised more than half her wardrobe, and her paintings, are the vivid colours of turquoise and ocher.
