ABOUT ME

I am a painter working in Turku, Finland. Perception is the basis of my inspiration although I want to carry it out freely. My latest paintings are inspired by Voyage Pittoresque. In the 18th century artists made journeys around Europe to seek an perfect landscape. In my paintings landscape changes from a modest pothole to a massive mountain hill. I paint on aluminium. 

BIOGRAPHY
TECHNIQUE

I paint with oil on aluminium. I like the smoot surface of aluminium. It reflects the light whilst painted on with thin layers but it can carry loads of paint if necessary. I use my fingers and different spatulas to paint. I also love to use oils sticks which are great to draw on aluminium. My painting process is very intensive and requires a lot on concentration to be succesfull.
