Hello after a while! Still lovely to see that you keep visiting here, even though it has been quiet and most of things are updated on Instagram.

There is a new book with my illustrations available, in Finnish. The story is by Pauliina Vanhatalo and the book is published by S&S, the book is called “Nipistäjä-Kerttu".

Kerttu is a girl that likes her long finger nails and pinching when her family does not notice her enough. She forgets pinching while learning about the worlds that are inside each of us. The worlds that make us all special.

My illustration work was supported by three month grant by Suomen Kulttuurirahasto, thank you so much for it! Thank you also Pauliina and Mirjam, happy that I got to know this determined pincher girl and her world.

Happy autumn!

These streets and views in different weather became very familiar to me during November, a month in a residency in Reykjavík. My Travelogue grew in wind, in snowy days and in sunshine and frost pinching nose. With dear new friends and so many shared teacups and cakes, songs of ravens. The lighthouse was twinkling, the Aurora Borealis danced on the sky. Swimming water was warm, the mountains snowy. The paintings were done with the support from Arts Promotion Centre Finland.

If you are looking something to give to your dearest, these are some items available with my illustrations:
Breathe and Be, A Book About Mindfulness Poems illustrated book, also available here
Blue Skies umbrella
