Joy of life through art - Art through joy of life

 

WELCOME!

 

As a self-taught visual artist I am committed to life-long learning. I started with traditional  watercolours and moved further to special techniques like watercolour batik paintings on rice paper and painting on the synthetic paper (Yupo) which now is my favourite technique.

 

At the moment, I spend my days in the wonderful world of graphic printing, creating little stories our of my phantasy. At some point, I also did soft pastel paintings, linocuts and encaustic cards. Each of these boosted my creativity and helped me to grow as an artist.

 

Obviously, I was born as a storyteller;  endless enthusiasm and lively imagination are my strengths. My works often show a playful approach and include hidden stories. With my art I wish to express and share my joy of life and love of nature. Art through joy of life - joy of life through art!

 

My portfolio shows original artworks, created in different media. New works are added frequently  My paintings have been exhibited at numerous exhibitions in Finland and abroad  (CV). Should you find here something interesting, or think I could help with some of your art related projects, feel free to contact me.

Some of my watercolour paintings and graphic works are available at TAIKO, the online gallery for Finnish art: https://www.taiko.art/raxu-helminen
