“I’m an absolute art nerd. When I was 3 years old, my parents enrolled me to a visual art school where I learned some basic painting techniques. Later, at 5 I got into a music college where I studied violin, music theory and played in an orchestra. It’s quite rare that producers working in the contemporary world have a background in the basics of arts. I’m happy that I got to study that as a child”.
Olesia was born and raised in Tatarstan and alone immigrated to Finland at the age of 17.
