BIOGRAPHY

I am a self-taught abstract artist based in Helsinki, Finland. Ever since childhood, I’ve had a strong interest in art. However, it took me many years before I truly gave space to my own creativity. I first began painting in 2013 but lost the spark eventually as I didn’t quite believe in my talents as an artist. In fall 2020 I felt a strong calling to create again and haven’t been able to stop ever since.

STATEMENT

Painting is a natural way to express myself and the things that fascinate me. When I paint, everything around me disappears and I feel completely present in the moment. I am inspired by many things but rarely plan my paintings ahead. Instead, I let my intuition lead the way. I like to use acrylic paints and explore different color combinations. I am excited to see where this road will take me, there is still so much to learn and discover.
