PASTELS AND PHOTOGRAPHY
Welcome and thank you for discovering my artist`s page.
Born in Helsinki, Finland 1960 into a family tradition of master woodcarvers and artists. I have been influenced by my father`s, uncles' and cousins' love of design and functionality in my art. I have always enjoyed experimenting with various art mediums, from drawing in school days to trade school in cabinetmaking to pastels and artistic photography techniques.
I use digital photography as an art medium and as a valuable tool for design and inspiration of future work.
In 2005, I began painting with soft pastels in Fremantle, Western Australia and in 2006 was a foundation member of Artzplace, a group of artists in Cockburn, Western Australia.
In July 2014, my family and I moved to Dunedin, New Zealand. I am now proudly an artist member of the Otago Art Society, Dunedin Photographic Society and Wakari Art Group.
