Okk Arts was established by cultural producer and art projects manager Jaanika Okk. Jaanika embarked on her creative career over ten years ago as a freelance artist focusing on traditional and digital printmaking. In 2008, she began managing art events and creative projects for other artists. Since then, she has organised over 20 different projects. These range from her own solo shows to large-scale international festivals involving over 50 visual artists from 35 different countries. Added to this, Jaanika has extensive professional experience in photography, graphic, and layout design, as well as auctioneering from an established auction house in the Midlands.

Jaanika has studied Arts in Tallinn (Estonia), Canterbury, and London.  She holds degrees in fine arts, specialising in printmaking at Estonian Academy of Arts, and earning a Master of Arts in Arts and Project Management from Birmingham City University. She subsequently went on to further her education at Central Saint Martins in London. Today Jaanika is a member of the Board of the Foundation Tallinn Print Triennial and a member of the Estonian Artists’ Association and the Association of Estonian Printmakers.

Jaanika is Re:Present 2016 Fellow – Transforming the Diversity of Cultural Leadership and a member of  BNI Alliance / BNI Birmingham & Coventry.

She is passionate about site-specific art, how to adapt visuals to a particular setting, and the way in which art relates to the environment and influences audiences. She is fascinated with how different art forms and various audiences communicate with each other and how to nurture this dialogue.
