I wanna bring positive emotions and love through my art to the world“

Hey there! Let me introduce myself. My name is Liisi Gordejev. I’m a self taught artist and blogger from Estonia.

What is Artliis?

Artliis is a place where I share my artwork and tips about everything that I’ve learned so far as an artist in hopes of inspiring you to create the life you love and show that everything is possible if you put your attention, mind and heart on it. Most of the advice is meant for creative people just like me. Also for creative people who are just starting out and are looking for something which would motivate them.

I paint wildlife and landscape paintings. I love beautiful colors! Also I make custom portraits of people. I find it very fascinating to draw somebody. To learn and study every inch of their face.

„My goal is to inspire people through my art and experiences that I’ve had“.


I was born and raised in Estonia, Tallinn. I have been loving drawing since I was a little girl. Back then  I spent many days drawing and painting with my grandmother.

Later on when I was about 8 years old and went to school, I took some art classes. Oh boy, I was always so excited to go there! I attended at these classes for few years. After that, I unfortunately had to concentrate more on my studies and I didn’t draw and paint so much.

I studied Business and Marketing in the university but I decided to quit it last year because I felt like I was studying the wrong thing. Don’t get me wrong, right now I’m really grateful for all the knowledge that I got from the university. The thing is, marketing and business didn’t light up my soul. It wasn’t my passion. I just couldn’t imagine myself working in that area for the rest of my life.

So I needed to find out what it is that I would love to do!

Back then I was having really hard time in my life. I was searching for ways to get my attention away from my problems. So I started to draw and paint again. I remember that I saw one artist’s beautiful artwork on Facebook and I thought to myself. „ Can I do something like this?“  And the rest is history.

 And when I’m currently not painting, drawing and blogging, there’s a good chance you’ll find me:

Reading books, playing the piano, singing, meditating or doing Yoga. Or having good time with my dear friends.
