Most of my works are oil paintings, mixed media relief paintings, or aquarelles. Recently, I have made installations. Especially I like to use recycled material as well in my relief paintings as in my installations. The old great stories have been in my interest.


For this collection, I have chosen nature-themed relief works and oil paintings of the theme Carmen. Finland’s nordic nature, people, and old great stories are inspiring me.
