Collaborating and making images that create meaningful visual content for my clients is at the core of my work. I paint and draw, aiming for warmth, fun, and flow—even elevating the mundane.
I designed book covers before starting illustrating a few years ago. The great city of Helsinki is where I live and work.
When I'm not working, you can usually find me doing sports, reading, or learning to do impersonations with my kids.
Themes I get enthusiastic about, among others, are social justice, the natural world, environmentalism, psychology, personal development, scientific discoveries, the cosmos, well-being, culture (visual arts, comedy, music, movies, books..., I love them all!). And of course, people, our relationships, stories, and love. I mostly get commissioned to illustrate people and portraits, often representing these fields, and I'm so happy about that! At the moment, I'm expanding my repertoire to other things as well.
