I'm visual artist born and trained in Finland. By my parents I was introduced early on to the multiple media I still work in; ranging from watercolor and soft pastel to oil paint and print making as well as sculpture.
I work and live in Munich, Germany, since 2017. My works have been represented and exhibited by galleries internationally since my graduation from Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 2010.
The interiors in my paintings are often an imaginary space with real elements collected from several locations in my sketches and photographs. They are paintings of the space in between: composed win-dows to ephemeral: with an invitation to step in an contemplate in slow time. My paintings of interiors, giant flowers and composed snapshot still lives are like a dream one is given an opportunity to stroll into, a space of improbable and to behold the time standing still. In paintings the subjects reach beyond their natural size and lifetime allowing us to stretch the experience of beauty from a sparkling passing moment to a life time.
In this serene and curious space, I wish my audience to feel a moment of equilibrium as well as the delight we can experience in the presence of beauty.
