Artist’s Statement

I am inspired by strong shapes and contrasts. An important place for me to do has been the Åland archipelago, its changing color and light phenomena have taught me to see the world with new eyes. The lines and shapes of the gray ever-rock have been my subject for more than a decade. In my recent watercolor work, I let pigment and water do their job. At its best, it feels like I’m just a tool for conveying the thoroughness of the moment.

I graduated as a graphic designer from the Lahti Design Institute in 1982. From 1996 to 2017, I worked as a graphic designer at Finnish Broadcasting Company (Yle). For a long time, the work of a graphic artist satisfied the need to create and make an image.

I graduated as a visual artist from the Turku Academy of Arts in 2013. I live and work in Pori.
