About me

I'm a graphic artist based in Helsinki, Finland. I work in the mix of illustration, design and art. I create work for print and digital, textiles, packaging and products. Sometimes my creations also take over spaces and climb on walls and windows. My style can be described as a blend of delicious candy colors, playful shapes and big smiles. I've developed my craft over the years, drawing inspiration especially from Nordic simplicity, Japanese aesthetics and folk arts. I create all my works by combining paper cut with digital processing. This gives my work its unique and warm handmade feel. I've been lucky enough to have worked with clients around the world. My clientele includes Minna Parikka, BluePrint and Google among others. My work has also won many clients in Japan, where I've collaborated with Isetan, Epos Card and many more.
