I am a nature and wildlife painter from Finland, born 1980 in the small town of Ekenäs on the southern coast of Finland. I work mainly in acrylic, oil and watercolours. I have always been fascinated by nature and wildlife, and that is where I draw my inspiration from.
I'm currently living in Whakatane in New Zealand with my husband, and my studio is set up in a spare room in our house. You can read about what I am up to in the studio in my blog, and if you like art tutorials I have a Youtube channel where I upload videos every week.
Nothing planned at the moment.
