Tiia Henriksson I am a self-taught artist who started painting as a therapy recommendation by a friend, after a sudden death of a dear family member. I have never held a paint brush on my hand before - and my latest touch to painting was fingure paint as a child. After my first paint stroke on the canvas, I just could not stop. At first I was painting all around the clock. I was just so amazed of what I could create by just using these hands and I had no idea. Because art is by mostly therapy for me and a way to channel my feelings - my every piece involves huge emotions. I have cried, laughed, been excited of making each and every piece. I believe it can be seen from these pieces. My art is painted abstract pieces.
