Jugapuu has taken part in contests such as “Future Stars of Estonian Art 2016”, where she won third place and the Young Painter Prize 2016 (Baltic Young Painter Award 2016), when she managed to reach the 15 finalists. Her way of painting is characterized by strong brushwork and a strong sense of color.

According to the artist herself, her paintings are born spontaneously.
