Vilja Promet is born in Aimla, in Viljandi County. After the studies from Tääksi 8-grade School, she entered Tartu’s Art School where she was Ilmar Malin’s student.

She got her higher education diploma from Estonian Institute of Arts, where she studied jewellery and blacksmithing. Vilja worked many years as a freelance artist and made contractual works for „Ars-Juveel”.
She found her way back to painting almost 30 years ago and has commited to only that. Up until today, she has had more than 15 personal exhibitions.
