Art prints and postcards
I’ve created art prints and postcards for sale during some four years. Among other places my art has been sold in here: The Regional Library of Joensuu, Cultural Café Laituri in Joensuu, Forget Me Not -shop and Taito Shop Tampere, The Tampere Design Market -events and Gallery Rupla in Helsinki.
I’m quite a versatile worker in a field of arts. There have been a variety of projects I’ve carried out or taken part in. As a graphic designer I’ve done (for example) web design, advertising for different events, illustration, project layouts and physical decoration of a street festival, working as a team leader. I’ve also carried out social art projects and created art prints in mixed media.
I’ve been working in a personal social art project illustrating social dreams of groups and individuals since 2013. The project has given me a lot of experience in arranging exhibitions and carriyng out a big amount of different tasks connected in creating social art.
Working in Popkatu organization which arranges a street festival in Eastern Finland has offered me possibilities to obtain team working and leading skills. Temporarily fast paced work has also given a certain perspective in investing one’s time in a project fully.
My native language is Finnish. I speak and write fluent English.
