Creativity is a gift, blessing my life with joy and magic. Thankful for this gift I want to express and share this joy of life and my love for nature through my artwork.
I'm constantly inspired by the small and great wonders of our nature - the four seasons, forests and rocks, plants and animals, as well as wild flowing waters or birds' nests. On the other hand, ordinary everyday objects can trigger my imagination - these spontaneous ideas often result to playful paintings with a touch of fairytale or silent humour. For me, each painting is a visual story and each viewer interprets it in his/her own individual way. Art through joy of life - joy of life through art!
Welcome to explore my portfolio to see a selection of my original artwork - mainly watercolors on
different surfaces and new monoprints and mixed media. A few pastel paintings and linocuts found their way to this site as
well. Some paintings already found a new home; many are still available - just ask! My artwork has been published in company calendars and international exhibition
Selected artworks are available only through TAIKO, the online gallery for Finnish Art
Feel free to contact me for further information. Enjoy!
