Helsinki in Finland is my home town. Nowadays I do paintings, mixed media works, and installations. I like to use different materials. First I graduated as a textile artist, then studied at Helsinki University and graduated as Master of Arts (MA). Later I continued fine art studies, and developed also special methods, such as relief painting, and making pictures in a prehistoric way: painting with blood-water and pure pigments.
I have designed textiles, print fabrics, and posters, also written manuscripts for TV films. From the year 2000 I have arranged solo exhibitions in Finland, Belgium, France, Germany, Portugal and the USA. Participations in collective exhibitions and art fairs in Finland, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Denmark, England, France, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Japan, Malta, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the USA. Most notable participation: Triennale Internationale d’Art Contemporain de Paris Bastille Design Center 2016, “EARTH” in UNITED NATIONS HEADQUARTERS NYC New York USA 2016, “Grazie Italia” in Biennale di Venezia 2015, “Triennale di Arti Visive a Roma” 2014, “International Contemporary Masters” in Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Art Las Vegas USA 2013, “Chianciano Biennale” Museo d’Arte di Chianciano Italia 2013, “Triennale Internationale d’Art Contemporain de Paris” Cité International des Arts 2013, “Höstsalong” Edsvik Konsthall Sollentuna Sverige 2009.

My artworks are published in international art publications in Finland, Bulgaria, China, England, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Russia, Ukraina and the USA.

My paintings are in public and private collections in Finland, Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Russia and the USA.

Impressions, colors, lights, phenomenons of nature, are sources of my working. Also human life – in good and bad - is in the focus of my art. Over the past few years I have made current anti-war art against greediness for money and violent oppression. These artworks act as a comment on behalf of peace.
