About me

I’m an artist, illustrator and graphic designer based in Helsinki, Finland. I studied philosophy and aesthetics at Helsinki Uni­versity and graphic design at Helsinki Metropolia UAS. I wrote my bachelor’s thesis on illustrated maps in fantasy literature (published in Finnish on Theseus.) I’ve worked as a professional illustrator and graphic designer since 2013. My work has been published in books, magazines and digital media. At the moment I focus primarily on my personal artwork and my own print products.


NOTE: I am not taking any client projects currently!
