old coins


I got some random coins my dad had found at a flee market.




I like old stuff so I wanted to make a necklace and earrings that have that kind of vibe, and I like the outcome :D

Year of the Phoenix



Once again, I felt like 'closing' the ending year with selfies.
2014 almost everything has transformed in my life and I feel good starting again.


...because the're not many things better thank a blank canvas to spark the mind into action.




 a phoenix doll with a guardian angel, representing this year.
And my first acrylic painting in YEARS, painted a few days ago. With Gold :D

A few older shots of my godson, from the beginning of 2014.
 I'm thankful that this year is almost over, even though it has been one of the greatest so far.
Grateful, tired and happy. :)

Bloodmoon


Can't fight my nature...
What started out as a dark Tarot-inspired vampire + cat, ended up as a cute shapeshifter pinup.
I plan do make a calendar with this theme in mind. If I ever have the time :D


I started working on this in december 2013.
I don't think I've ever sat on any single image for this long...
Here you can see my first sketch and what followed during 2014:



my cards and my blood in a wine glass. Blame the cat and it's sharp claws...
I think I was in a dark place last year. That is why it took so long to finish this. I don't like to give bad vibes to my images, I want them to make you smile.
Now this shapeshifter is ready to make you smile with it's fluffy ears :)

Space - the final artists frontier


As a teenager I was obsessed about the Ender book saga, and Star Trek next generation was a must see every week. When a couple of months ago I got asked to paint a book cover, I didn't even dear to dream that I would get to paint a book cover like this. I loved the theme, and I got a lot of freedom to visualize the main character and the organic space ship. I have never ever painted spaceships and now I wonder why???? This is soooooo much fun!!! =)




Demos for the composition and the human/alien boy:

grandma's pearls



As a kid, I got a pretty pale green faux pearl necklace from my grandparents and broke it.
Only a couple of the pearls remained, I saved them because I loved the necklace.
Yesterday I walked into a bead shop and found matching pearls, for the first time in 25 years.
I was planning to make a 50's style simple necklace with the original pearls
but this real turquoise stone spoke to me, so this happened.
Also the small white pearls were a broken necklace or bracelet,
it was given to me by my father after my grandma passed away.
She was amazingly talented and patient with crocheting, knitting, everything.
This makes me think of her. <3

intermission; tea and diamonds

Drinking tea and handwashing very blue clothes.




I've been ill for a week, and even though it doesn't look like it, I'm preparing for my next painting, which will have a water theme as well :)

spring - part 2 - colors in and out

I cut up some candy wrappers and plastic bags. Trash is actually really pretty.
And it stays on your face pretty well with just water. Long enough to take weird selfies.



As for this spring, I also got inner colors by lovely Katariina <3

weird spring - part 1

There was cathair on my calendar one morning.
I think this picture tells all. I've had a spring of weird distractions.

I was on telly. Twice! What/why/how? Pure luck. And 10 years of work. Mostly luck.


Also my cat was on tv. He has no idea though. Because he's a cat.


I also moved. My new workspace is wonderful. And distractingly ALMOST finished.



 I am trying really hard to focus on work after a month of moving chaos, today I laminated bookmarks. This is not work. I know.
