About me

I’m an artist, illustrator and graphic designer based in Helsinki, Finland. I have two academic degrees on arts and culture: 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 – find it on Theseus: Kartan rooli ja ulkoasu fantasiakirjallisuudessa. I’ve worked as a professional illustrator since 2013. My work has been published in various books, magazines as well as digital media.

At the moment I am fully booked and I’m not taking any new projects until further notice.
