ABOUT

 

I gain inspiration from literature, mythology, people, animals, travelling, fashion, thrift stores

and life in general

I paint figurative works that touch upon the construction of femininity and interspecies relations. This thematic perspective was originally inspired by the disappearance of a childhood friend and my studies in literature, which focused on myth and femininity. Very recently, my attraction towards myth and magical realism has started giving way to an interest in portraiture as a reflection of everyday life.

I trained as an artist in Scotland and the USA (MFA, 2007). The highlights of my juried exhibition venues thus far include the National Portrait Gallery in London (2002), the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh (2021), Turku Art Museum (2009) and Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova (2019). I have had solo shows at Salo Art Museum (2014) and Joensuu Art Museum (2018), and an outdoor exhibition at Espoo Museum of Modern Art EMMA (2020).
