Meet the Creator

I am designer and artist from Turku Finland. I graduated Master of Arts at at Aalto University, School of Arts. Before I have graduated Furniture designer at the Institute of Art and Design in Lahti.

As a designer and an artist I have participate in a variety of events, exhibitions and projects both in Finland and abroad. I have cooperated with several different companies, cities and associations.

Over the past few years I have specialized in making large-scale paintings and done dozens of public works of art.

When I'm planning my works on urban space, I always use architecture, history and people as a starting point for my fork. A natural part of my work is to collect ideas from the surroundings and to try to fit my work with the themes and things around. With my work I want to underline and improve the regions identity and bring something personal, humorous and joyful to the peoples everyday life.
