My artistic practise has been very diverse, but mostly I've been working with digital techniques, probing the area between the individual and society. Some years ago, after experiencing a very difficult period, I started to paint with watercolor and the focus changed as well. Painting has become my main technique. My theme is the "spiritual adventure", exploration through meditation, mysticism, transformation and, of course, the power of love.

My works are presented in different contexts from traditional gallery exhibitions to events with direct audience interaction. One of my permanent public art works is a sculpture which is an instrument - the Omphalomin - which is placed in a park in eastern Helsinki (it works with light sensors). I work in community art projects as well, for example with the "Animation Station" where I make stop motion animation with the audience.

I grew up on an island in the south of Finland. After a few years of sociology studies, I realized that I wanted to become a visual artist. I have a BA in sculpture from Turku Art Academy and a MA in "Context and digital media" from Valand School of Art at Gothenburg University. I live and work in Finland, Helsinki.
