fake blood, part 2: Transformation

What does it feel like to open up and feel, for the first time?

Do you feel dread or freedom?

fake blood, part 1: Wolfie

This is me at the moment mentally.
Coming out of the woods, still alive.

Thanks to Kaira, again, for assistance, and film blood A :D

Artist portrait of Katariina

 I have a privilege to be surrounded by passion, talent and sharp insight.
I wanted to take these pictures of Katariina as a reminder to myself
I am so blessed to have friends to walk beside me.
All the mindblowing conversations over tea and great veggie food are a true blessing.

Thursday, June 30, 2016


Yesterday was probably the best day of this summer .
I swam in the lake, spent the whole day outside in the sun with my mom and grandmom,
and finished this chakra-colored dreamcatcher.


 I will be blessed with the memory of this day every time I see these on my wall...

Gameart flashback

I just got a book with my art in it. It is from 2014 (my art from 2012) and by poor luck I haven't come across it until now, but nevertheless, here are the wonderful pages with my name and art on them(not on the cover though). Client: Anssi Inkinen(game developer).

The book is an environment painting process guidebook by Dopress Books.

selfish spring

 I am thinking about easter, spring and new beginnings.
At times I feel a little lost in between seasons.
Which, I've heard, is a good thing.
(when you're lost, youre on your way)

I can't wait for the earth to fully wake up.
I miss the grass, the wind in the trees.
I feel like when summer comes, I will BE there :)

sometimes it's quite hard to take pictures without cats in the frame :D

Forest Nymphs and a robot

pencil, comic marker, metal leaf, digital colors.

I have been thinking about making this kind of piece ever since I found Yoann Lossel's art,
but I have a long way to go :)

The four elements call me in the wind and fire.
Love keeps me warm.

And as a bonus, a memory of a recent cozy day of fixing and building things.

2015 - alteregos

The year 2015 was crazy, a full packed ride of colors and sounds and emotional turmoil.
I feel I've arrived here more or less in one piece and looking back, quite victorious.

I have been lucky enough to have had a little art exhibition in Paris, France,
I've learned how to simultaneously sing and play songs, tried new lighting techniques,
eaten my first churros, fallen in love with harem pants like a true hippie,
I've been a makeup model, broken my girly shoe-heel partying as a vampire and much more...

 I've gone to several art exhibitions and concerts with friends and family, learned to broaden my artistic viewpoint on life....

 ...gone to my first ever ropecon and collaborated with Bard&Jester for a bracer photoshoot...

...been a viking...

 ...somewhere in the summer arranged a post apocalyptic photoshoot and later, been a vampire...

.....thanks to my godchild, gotten in touch with my witchy side....

...and finally re-invented myself as an artist who is allowed to use all mediums with a clear conscience.

Thank you Sakari, Katariina, Sini, Kaira, Toni and all others who have carried me through this terrible and amazing year <3
