Content: Abstract


Colours in movement, for example tranquil natural elements or energetic pattern, are my main interest. I use abstract and intuitive painting method to create these atmospheres and turn them into pictures and spaces. In my latest series Journey , Perhosefekti, Serene I have focused on quietness and peacefulness. Abstract pictures associates as landscape, breath, horizon, the dark - atmospheres with movements of nature build the picture of the quietness. Layered, down to earth paintings create a silent fanfare – an ode for silence in the middle of huge rush and tempo around us in our everyday lives.

New project Indian Express (upcoming 2015-2016) I`m using colors more loud and strong, making also painting act more visible on bright scales and straight action. Indian Express shows fast and sponteous paint strokes with exotic vibe. Paintings can be seen as a abstract journal of my travels to other countries and cultures. As serie Journey was falling you asleep, Indian Express will wake you up and fill you with energetic thrill.

My next aim is to expand the project beyond the canvas and turn it into an installation of sound and colour.

I am a visual artist based in Finland (b. 1984). I have had several solo exhibitions and taken part in various curated group exhibitions Finland, and also in the Netherlands and Estonia. For more information please visit
