Biography

Something about me and my art:
Born 1967, Kerimäki, Finland.
Self taught/educated artist.
Lives in Helsinki, Finland (since 1984).
Commercial college graduated 1989
Adult high school graduated 1998
Several courses: bookkeeping 1999, 2012, ADP 1996
Artiste FIAP, ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence)
Certificate of excellence in Artavita and Circle - Foundation for the Arts in 2017.
Memberships: Helsinki Camera Club, Itä-Helsingin taideseura (East Helsinki Art Club), FIAP, GPU
Written a book in 2017, in Finnish Taidekirja(ko) - kirja taiteen tekemisen jäljillä olemisesta (freely in English: Art Book? - A Book after Making Art).
Several solo exhibitions in local pubs (Sam's Music Bar and Ratapub) in East Helsinki 2003-2008.
Group exhibitions:
Colorida Art Gallery, Lisbon, portugal 2013
Several group exhibition with East Helsinki Art Club in Helsinki, Finland 2015-2017.

I started making art with hyperrealistic drawings about in 1992 fall. It was coming quite good as beginner, but I needed more. Hyperrealistic wasn't my thing.
My art is typically representative or pure abstract and or surreal as well minimal, which is not depending on time or place. I don't normally paint or draw human made things.
My styles varies but it is often strong and expressive and expressionistic with high feelings and emotions and is some how spiritual (not religional). I don't want to limit myself, so there are no exact borders in my art. I might be near madness in working period, because I believe I can't create anything great from normality. Automatism is typical for me.
Specially when you give your personal best, there is the loudest silence.
Never knows what is happening, or is it going to happen anything.
Life is a process of learning nd art is a great adventure to unknown future.
Ask anything what you want, and I'll answer what I may tell is my truth. It might be my truth is not the same as yours.
