Oma kuvaus

I am an active artist from Finland whose art can be described as a mixture of dreams and wakefulness. With the way I use colors and clear imagery I want to invite you as a viewer to a world of mirrors and windows. Through my art, I wish that you will get an opportunity to reflect inwards and meet your inner world or turn your gaze outwards and observe what meets you there. Because for me art can be the window out to how we perceive the world or the mirror that reflects to us our own hidden world. Both alternatives give us the opportunity to learn, grow and to live genuinely.

The reason for me making art is that I wish to express Life. It may sound like a big approach but the way I see it, it can be quite the opposite. Because Life is in the everyday way of living and too often those moments are forgotten or simply not appreciated by many. With my work I want to express both the beauty and struggles in Life and try to show that there is magic around us. It all comes down to our own way of looking at things and what we are willing to see and face.

My goals with my work are to invite the observer to feel something when watching my paintings. With my color choices and motifs, I wish to create a subtle invitation for you to rest in the moment as well as to develop and learn from what the art evokes within you. The language of colors and images may at first trick you into thinking that what you see is what you get, but if you allow yourself to stop and look, you will notice that something is starting to happen inside. And for me as an artist one of the most important goals is to keep creating the kind of art that speaks to my soul. It is also very important for me that each painting will find it’s right person and home and that there will be a connection between that person and his/hers painting.

This year I’ve painted for 10 years and the background to my creations is an alternative spiritual view of life. Since my earliest childhood, I have felt a strong connection with animals, nature, and the energy of life. I use my sensitivity to energies as one of my tools in my painting. The great sources of inspiration are the inner personal development, the mysterious and nature, and a motif that is particularly characteristic of me is birds.

Due to health challenges that began around the age of 30, my creations and techniques have been adjusted gradually. Today, I am limited in my painting both in how I can hold on to my brushes and in how long I can work at a time. Despite this, I have continued to work with my art. There is always a painting going on in my head and I can’t imagine a life without my colors and worlds, which I puts down on paper or canvas.
