I studied Visual Communication at the Oulu University of Applied Sciences and graduated as Media Artist with a bachelor’s degree in Culture and Art. In my day job I work as an Art Director in an advertising agency, and when I have time I freelance as an illustrator.
I have always loved drawing people. The most important thing in a portrait for me is the expression, the emotion. I’m inspired by seemingly quiet moments where the strength is in the eyes. Things dreamy and magical have always intrigued me.
Other things that inspire me are art, fashion, music, colors, patterns, and especially after having my two sons, children. I also have a healthy obsession in drawing hair.
