Artist’s Statement

My works are coloured and painted wooden sculptures. My lovely and tiring family life is my inspiration.

I started to make wood sculptures in Institute of Fine Arts in Lahti. I painted before it. Step by step my ideas had something to with wood sculpting.

I love the physicality of sculpturing, the sweat and filing. I work quite impulsively and do also the craziest ideas.
