Our VDMFK – The Day of the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists on September 5th

So, today is the Day of the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists: http://vdmfk.com/en/news/  ,
For the second time in the history of the Association. The Association was created by Erich Stegman (1912-1984) on 1957. The day is dedicated to him and his wonderful lifework that now I also have the honour to be part of and to introduce the real art that is a little bit different being made with mouth or foot.
The
Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists operates in 72 countries. There are slightly less than eight hundred artists.
I hope that my little coloured footstep has remained in the hearts... 


On September 1st 12 years ago I became grantee of the VDMFK.

On August 27th 10 years ago I opened my first exhibition.

On August 30th, last week, I opened my first exhibition abroad, in the Estonian House in Stockholm.

My first painting – March 24th, 2006.

There have been lots of incredibly beautiful joys in these years where I have had the courage to put my courage of living into colours and share my art of living with others. With the world.
An incredible lot of work.

It is possible to do it in somewhat different way although everything is totally ordinary after all. The brushes, colours and canvasses are all totally ordinary. The different thing are my legs that are pretty and hard-working.

I think my message that special needs are not important has reached many people. What matters is the talent and the wish to be there and share with others the joy that these two things give.

I am grateful and happy for my legs and my heart that I am able to speak the language of colours and give something good to the world… That life has given me such a challenge.

Congratulations to everybody !
Thanks to everyone who appreciates the art made in a little bit different way !

In my heart there is a joy about the birth of a new book. I have found the courage to write again, and I am still able to kickstart. Please, my own dear people who are eager to read my honest thoughts about living as a disabled woman, help me to kickstart by supporting the publishing and presentation of my book that is going to take place in two months, by any amount you see fit. There will be gifts for all supporters, from my heartfelt thanks to a day spent together with me 🙃💖 You can support my project until June 30th.  https://www.hooandja.ee/en/projekt/kohvi-palun-jalaga?fbclid=IwAR3oz8RtUxtd2Y_xBlz7t5YzaFOiIVKJakotkZt9HG1UOIb2_UCc7c1KsdE

A short overview about what I’ve been up to in October.

On October 9th there was the opening of the international exhibition titled “Courage to Live”. I participate in the exhibition with my painting “A Woman”, which has become one of the favourites, as I was told. The exhibition was told about on TV, but my work was not shown. I’ve been told that there was also an article written for a journal, and the text I wrote to accompany my painting was also used, but I don’t know if the article has been published yet. It is my understanding that sometime in the beginning of 2019 the same exhibition will open in Tartu, in the Estonian National Museum.




On October 15th I opened an exhibition titled “Yearning” at the Culture Centre at Värska which is a small borough in South Estonia with a peculiar and lively culture.
