Digital Illustrator


I'm a digital illustrator and animator from Kouvola, Finland. I've graduated as Bachelor of Culture and Arts from Oulu AMK in spring 2020. Before that, I completed my studies of Visual Artisan in Ammattiopisto Lappia in 2013.

I create art because I always have. I've been passionate about drawing ever since I was a child, and I began to practice making art more seriously in my teenage years. For me, to live is to create.

I love interesting character designs, lively colors and the magic of bringing things to life by means of animation.
