Joy of life through art - Art through joy of life

 

WELCOME!

 

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 catalogues.

 

Selected artworks are available only through TAIKO, the online gallery for Finnish Art
