ME

ME

I am a visual artist from Kokkola, Finland, who works by painting, drawing and making different kinds of installations. Painting is the basis of everything in my art. I like to work on topics as entities, where the entity forms some kind of message. Ecological values as well as our relationships with other people and the world around us are enduring issues for me. My way of doing art is experimental and I’m interested in materials. When I paint, I use different kinds of tools from a baking spatula to a cleaning mop. I have used more recycled materials in my newest works: the history written on the material overlapping with the new purpose fascinates me.

I graduated as a visual artist from Turku Arts Academy at Turku University of Applied Sciences in 2017. I have also other art studies from National College of Art and Design in Dublin, Ireland, and Nordic Art School in Kokkola, Finland. I have since 2010 held solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions in Finland and abroad. My works have been seen for example in the Young Artists 2019-exhibition at Kunsthalle Helsinki. I belong to the Finnish Painters’ Union and a board member of The Ostrobotnian Artists´ Association.
