Artist's Statement


Exploring the relationship between man and nature has always been a very important element for my creating. Memories is the topic I constantly return to in my artwork. One of my goals is to help my environment to reduce their self-censorship. Artists, who aren’t afraid of showing their inner selves, are the ones getting my attention.

My field of art includes photography, painting, design and poetry. 

By frequently mixing different types of art materials, I allow myself to express different ideas. I have an aptitude for design and I am a multi-artist when it comes to the visual. Different types of packaging are important; the feeling of the material should always correspond to each project.

I was born in 1994 in Espoo, Finland. In the spring of 2017 I graduated as a photographer from Bachelor of Culture and Arts in Pietarsaari. I am based in Pedersore, Finland.
