Artist’s Statement

I work in Turku as a visual artist and a print maker. My main media is photopolymer gravyre. I combine photography and drawing. I enjoy sewing printing paper to have new dimension with working. I also make ceramics, videos and installations.

I´m interested in youportraiture. The main purpose then is to listen, understand and give feedback in a long working process. I make youportraits as attempts to understand and have a view on topic which we are working on.

I find it meaningful interaction to work with others for example in multicultural art projects, teaching graphic arts with my Pop up -workshop or making portraits of a people with dementia together with their loved ones.

I´m a member of Turku Artists´association, Turku Printmakers association, Salo Artist´s association, Artist´s association Muu and PAND - Performers and Artists for Nuclear Disarmament.
