Welcome to
my art pages!

Welcome to explore my art! I am a multi-talented visual artist and designer from Kuopio. My main work is communication and marketing design. Fine art is my great passion and richness of life every day.

The subjects of my artworks vary widely, but I mostly paint details of nature and everyday life, animals or flowers. My painting style is precise and detailed, although lately, I have also sought more freedom. I paint with watercolour and acrylic paints and with various drawing supplies, e.g. with pencils and ink.

The artworks in the gallery are mainly from recent years, although there are also a few drawings from the distant past before the nearly ten-year break from art brought by the busy phase of life. However, art has always been involved in the patterns of my life in one way or another.

Maalaukset pojasta ja koirasta tilaustyönä

Viime vuoden loppupuolella sain yhteydenoton, tekisinkö tilaustyönä maalauksen pojasta ja koirasta. Mietin asiaa pari päivää, koska en ole maalannut kovin paljon ihmisiä enkä koiria. Myös välineeksi valikoituneet akryylivärit ovat…

About the artist

I have been drawing since childhood but the actual inner artist in me woke up when I tried oil painting with help of the guide book that I borrowed from a library at the age of 16. That is when I got a special enthusiasm for making art, and I started practicing drawing and painting eagerly.

I prefer to paint topics that are meaningful for me in some way. When I was younger, I searched topics around me, but nowadays, topics and ideas tend to find me without even looking for. Animals have been strongly present in my art from the beginning, as well as the details of nature and everyday life. I have immortalized my own experiences or things that have happened to people near me.
