I am a Fine Artist based in Stratford-on-Avon. I love painting and always have. I am inspired by the natural world. Being half Finnish has been a major influence on my work. As a young child, I experienced the icy cold snowy winters and long dark nights of Christmases in Finland. This contrasted dramatically with the light skies of summer nights spent on the family island in rural Finland. These experiences triggered my passion for the vibrant beauty of nature and remote landscapes.
I studied for my Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in Fine Art at the University of the West of England, Bristol.
I paint in a variety of mediums and I love experimenting with the processes of painting and embracing the results that this can create.
