A painter, writer and children’s book illustrator, Pusa focuses on “little things in between big things, for example, a small crack in a skyscraper’s foundation, the inside of a lemon peel or a bubble in boiling porridge.”

“I like to imagine life inside tiny things,” she said. “I believe that there is brisk and colorful life inside the tiny things in life.” Her work has been shown worldwide in group and solo exhibitions. In 2008, she received the Culture Award of Pärnu in Estonia.

Her visit is sponsored by the Estonian Embassy; World Artists Experiences, Inc.; and SU Cultural Affairs Office.

A meet-the-artist reception with Pusa starts at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 5. A closing reception for the exhibit begins at 5 p.m. Friday, April 18, during the Salisbury Arts & Entertainment District’s monthly Third Friday celebration.
