I am Tuija Marjakoski and I’m living in Pori, Finland. I was born near Pori in Ulvila 1956 and I have two children, Jantso 1986 and Liila 1989.
I have a 3-year education in Costume Sewing Line and have gone to evening school in later years. I have been about 4 years now in Porin Työväenopisto in Muotokuvamaalaus course. My dream has always been to become a professional costume designer and of course an artist as well.
One of my biggest sources of inspiration when I paint is my children, whom I have had to live apart from. I always wanted them closer to me and by painting them it made me felt that they were near me. I also often buy flowers from the flea market which inspire me.
My children and flowers.
