Piret Veski started painting in 2001. The artist's paintings are feminine and romantic and they all have a touch of mysticism.
Piret Veski designs the different frames of her paintings herself. When creating frames, she uses different materials: pearls, pebbles, plants, old window frames, driftwood, sheet metal, etc. The artist has compared the picture frame to a hat. She has said that the frame is the boundary between the soul of the picture and real life.
