By being aware of your environment, you can notice what is interesting there or what is missing.

25. Leena Niivuori

Svinhufvudinkatu 23 A, Lahti
I am a visual artist from Lahti. I have been working as an artist for 21 years. I mainly work with drawing and painting. My tool is often a charcoal pencil, with which I draw on a linen canvas painting base. In my works, I also combine drawing with acrylic painting. The starting point of my artistic work is the effort to encounter the essence of things and objects, i.e. their own essence. In order to reach the object, I present things as objectively as possible, without adding any meanings that come from me. Sometimes I wonder if the essence of a thing or an object, that is, what is in it, can even be reached by drawing or painting? How to describe something that exists even before it can be sensed or perceived? How to face the world as it is?

Kilpisentie 293, Myrskylä
My painting process is intuitive and expressive. Weather phenomena, caused by global warming, tornadoes, etc. are the subjects of my paintings. The ash of my painting material is genuine, passionate and firm. The ash paint manufacturing process is comprehensive. I burn all types of wood separately, so I can keep the tones pure. To me, ash is more like a pigment from which I mix my colors. Like a stream of life that carries along. In the afternoons, the feeling explodes on the canvas. Ashes in paintings, color swirls, storms, drips and smokes. Shades of grey, brown and black turn bluish and reddish, sensitively hear through each other, collide with fury.

I walk from home to there along a forest path with dogs accompanying me in summers and winters. I paint in the evenings and on weekends after my barber work. When painting, my sense of time disappears thinking about colors and shapes. I started painting at a community college, there have been several teachers over the years. I attended courses at the Repin Institute in Espoo for 5 years doping classic drawing and painting. Welcome to visit my studio.

Iso Kylätie 43, Sipoo
Tero Annanolli graduated with a master's degree in art in 2004 and completed his studies in 2015 as an artist at the University of the Arts' Theater College as part of the organizations in the education program. Annanoll's works are in domestic and foreign collections. He is also a gold medalist at the 2012 London Art Olympics. Annanolli knows art history very well. However, he will never get stuck in history. He brings us old-fashioned echoes of beauty, but always in a renewing way and with an eye towards the future. The beauty of his works is not the repetition of the old ones that have been seen many times, because he combines boldly. His works may combine Byzantine gold splendor, Japanese delicate drawing and Caravaggio-like theatrical use of light.

48. Annika Brandt - Artborg 35

Pilvilinnantie 2, Nickby / Nikkilä
I have a Master of Arts degree from the Aalto University School of Art and Design. I work as a visual artist, do placements as an art educator and hold own art courses. My way of working is often based on the fact that I combine my experiences into something important and current. I observe the environment, make visual notes of what fascinates me. Often, the work that ends up on canvas or paper has a completely different content history than the original idea that started it all. Acrylic and oil paints, oil chalks or liquid ink are my main tools. In several of my works I use mixed media. Using mixed media gives me a sense of freedom, joy and spontaneity. Actually crystallizes the content of my artwork.

Pilvilinnantie 2, Sipoo
In more than 20 years, I got experience in various fields of art, from painting, drawing, printmaking, to graphics. My real passion and deep interest is in drawing and woodcut. I fuel my inspiration from the small elements in nature, like studies of plants, wild flowers, animals or insects and my focus is where the sublime details are; the wing of a bird, the pistils of a flower, the veins in a leaf, the warm light on a subject or a blow in the wind. The artworks of Albert Dürer and Rembrandt have always fascinated me and often they are the ones that spark my creativity.

Kivistöntie 2, Mäntsälä
I often paint quickly in an expressionistic and sometimes abstract style. My favorite technique is acrylic on canvas or MDF board added with marker/oil paint etc.. ” I have had numerous exhibitions since 2004. As an artist, I am self-taught, and luckily I still have a lot to learn (is it the wisdom of life to realize that you don't know everything?). However, I know what pleases my eye and what doesn't. When I start a new work, I often have no idea what my new painting is about, and in the end the end result surprises even me. Sometimes I feel like I'm just a tool with which I bring my painting to life."

Kajavankatu 5 B 75, Kerava
I am a 55-year-old visual artist, FM from my previous education and carpenter-entrepreneur. Since I was a child, I have been doing crafts and fine arts, they are my way of being in this world. The ideas for my works often come from the borders of sleep and wakefulness, from dream images, different shapes and colors that I see at the time. On the other hand, some detail in the environment might catch my attention and start the process. When an idea turns into a project, I still don't know exactly where it will lead. I'll let the process go. I like to change techniques and try new ones. For me, art is a constant exploration of different methods, internal and external reality, different impressions and moods.

About me and my art 2024 I studied at the University of Helsinki as a Bachelor of Philosophy and at the Free Art School as a painter. I have been exhibiting my paintings regularly for 35 years in solo and group exhibitions. My work is based on colour, using the techniques of oil painting and egg yolk tempera. The progression of the work is guided by perception and the free flow of inner movement, the work proceeds in layers. I find abstract painting the most fascinating because in it you walk as a seeker. I often paint series such as the Kalevala, Rome and Egypt series or the Time is Always and Being series. I have painted the River series while living by the river and every spring the blossoming trees charm and entice me to work.

53. Carita Nissinen - Taiteilijayhdistys Tapaus ry

Viertolantie 2-4, Helsinki - Helsingfors
Structure and color of the patterns in a painting inspires me. My art is characterized by the display of my own inner mood, not so much by photographic reproduction. Painting with different tools frees me from precise brushwork, giving the desired free interpretation of the workflow. I try to create contrasts with colors and images. I express myself extensively and use a variety of technics from paintings to photography as well as three-dimensional works. My range of colors is wide, but I always try to gain a harmonious outcome. The painting can be colorful or reduced to black-white-gray. Paintings are descriptive but I don’t do it photographically, instead I let my emotions reflect in the painting.

I’m Tuula Toukkari - visual artist and born in 1966 . As a child, the best thing about school was the fine arts classes, where you knew what you were doing and you were able to realize yourself. At the end of the 1970s, I got to study new art techniques at the Espoo School of Fine Arts. When I went to work, visual art was left in the background until it blew into a new flame while studying at Pekka Halonen's Academy in Tuusula. After those years I have joined many painting and visual arts courses, of which I have drawn its inspiration for my own work.At the Pekka Halonen Academy, I did my final work on art graphics using old etching and aquatinting methods for copper plate. The past few years I have been painting acrylic and oil paints.

Kehäkukantie 6, Helsinki
My path as an artist is interestingly winding - from the original textile design to the current, very unique works combining textiles and painting. "In this expression I feel like I've come home, it combines many things that are very important to me." I use traditional materials in my works, starting with rabbit skin glue. The actual pattern often consists of jute fabric that has already been used once. With my works, I aim for peace and simplicity with the idea that less is more. My Raku ceramics also complement the message of my paintings. "I believe that less of everything gives us peace of mind and the opportunity to see completely new things, space to think in a new way."

At the moment I am exploring colours and combining them together in an open-minded way. Colours bring joy and light into the world. My paintings are often colourful and nature themed. What appeals to me in nature is the formal language, the colour scheme and the diversity found there. Nature is part of my life, my everyday life and my art. Now I want to create beauty around me.

Levytie 2–4, HELSINKI
I am a painter and my techniques are a variety of mixed media, using oil, acrylic, watercolour and crayon. The starting point for recent works is reed, both as a material and as a theme. Rust in the cupboards, rust around, rust on the mind. Recycled pieces of wood, fabrics and slats serve as a base. The properties of the bases I find provide the starting point for the works, and chance also has an influence on the starting points of the works. A work starts to build in my mind when I see a suitable base in a junkyard or at a flea market. I exploit the shapes, grooves, textures and imperfections of the ground, incorporating them as elements of the painting. A new world is built on top of an old one.

My work often springs from perceptions of our surrounding nature and from its phenomena, but also from present political and socio economic situations.

Veturitallinkuja 34, G-rappu, 2.krs, Helsinki
I'm a Helsinki-based jewellery artist working in Pasila's old railway yard. My works are highly abstract and almost always body-related. I am fascinated by the undefined and grey areas. I love when things and objects are not obvious, blur the lines and give space for various interpretations. The scale of my work alternates from small jewellerylike objects to bigger wearable wall pieces. My works are often crafted from small metal and ceramic bits and pieces into bigger and flowing, fabriclike objects. As having a dancing background, my work always seeks movement - moving, draping and flowing structures remind us of the everflowing life. I cherish the idea of multifunctionality - that the objects can been seen and worn in different ways.

Vanha talvitie 9, Helsinki
I live and work in Helsinki, Finland. In the year 2000, I graduated from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, after which I continued to deepen my studies in the longest continually operated arts academy in the world, the Imperial Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg. There, I received a classical education in painting under the tutelage of the most distinguished pedagogues. My art reflects on the layered nature of history, as well as the temporality of human existence. My paintings portray the transience of time and existence, carrying on the tradition of re-inscribing the legacy of western painting. Ephemerality has been immortalized in paintings and sculptures throughout art history. I am intrigued by the idea of immortalizing things that are held to be beautiful and valuab

When painting, the works can surprise both me and the viewer with their own form, composition, contrast. Making sculptures is more planned, form and matter with the laws of physics set some kind of bounda

With expressive painting I try to find something new with emotional weight. My style is expressive and abstract and I love colors., which tries to combine painting with abstraction. I use coincidences and spontaneous instinct in my painting and do not restrict the direction of the work. In my recent paintings, I have allowed imagined events from the early stages of my life to emerge in a semiotic space and emerge on canvas. This early interaction with those close to me can also occur between the viewer of my paintings and the painter (myself)

Aino Keinänen works on representative human description with mixed media on paper. The main subject of her exhibitions is equality which she seeks to promote by exploring characteristics of the human species. For example religiosity, animality, gender diversity, integrity and its violation, land ownership, community spirit and history writing have served as starting points for the projects. Diverse organisms and natural materials symbolize all of the things a human can be. From underneath the hard rocky shell of an individual grows the sensitivity whose allegory is nature in the form of vegetation and different flowers, berries, insects and reptiles.

My paintings are abstract or semi abstract. For me, art is a way of life and a way of dealing with things. The process is open and unplanned. Failure is also an opportunity. Watch out for wet paint! The Surprises are always possible! To quote Pessi Rautio, The Editor-in-Chief of Taidelehti: ”Märkälä wants to paint, to bring out the good on the top, so the process must end in something hopeful, full of oxygen and life, light, even what is beautiful.” ”To Märkälä, the world includes objects, good ones that simply must be depicted through painting, not least because they make such good paintings.” whole text:

Art is a way of life for me and the home of the soul. I am interested in different techniques and structures and I paint, for example on plexy and use different recycled materials in my works. My work is guided by cooperation between intuition and consciousness. Art speaks to me, highlighting topics from the subconscious, leaf columns, people's lips, gaze, gestures, own children's lives, the dimensions of the universe, mixing everything and finally forming some balance and peace. The topics of my works include: spiritual values, wellbeing, mental growth, femininity, masculinity, motherhood, sensitivity, nature and universality. Often, topics become visible in human faces. Their expressions tell things that are sometimes difficult to say.

My name is Sari-Aino Tolonen, and I´m an encaustic artist from Helsinki. In the 2010´s I became acquainted with the Encaustic Art (beeswax art), which made a huge impression on me. I found a teacher, the artist Belén Millán from Spain. She taught me this traditional encaustic painting technique. Already during my training, I discovered that the technique provides excellent opportunities to express art because it´s suitable for both - performing and abstract art. The technique enables the tooling of various surface structures. In addition, I can paint thin layers of lumionuos light or several different layers of wax on top of each other, after which I can dig out colors from the lower layers. Indeed the technique allows a huge number of different options.

Mechelingatan 42, Helsingfors
Horses have always represented a way of life for me, therefore it is natural for me that in my art I express my experiences and feelings strongly in different expressions, mostly in the form of horses. I am fascinated by the wisdom, peace, primitive power and freedom of this animal. Genetically, the horse is a prey animal, and its reactions are fast. A wise or wild look, movement and their hair thrown by the wind , and the herds peace of the pasture on a summer night. I want to achieve in my works exactly what is meaningful and important in these qualities. My horses are soulful. My way of working is spontaneous and intense, with the handprint being strong and sensitive at the same time. My materials are different painting techniques and my sculptures are ceramics or bronze.

I paint with oil colours. My paintings are clear and colourful, realistic in a way, but the shapes are clumsy and the play of colours is the main thing. The mood of my paintings is upbeat and my best reward is when the buyer of a piece says it makes them happy. I regularly participate in exhibitions, usually in group or collective shows. I also paint naïve works with whimsical round animal figures. These works have been exhibited at the Iittala Naiviste, and in the summer of '24 at the Väinölkä summer exhibition. I also do small-scale humorous illustrations for a few clients.

Born by the water, the artist has found inspiration for their life in the deep, shifting moods of the sea. The sea, the source of life and the epitome of strength, is at the heart of their art - sometimes powerful and turbulent, sometimes calming and comforting. Their expressive paintings reflect this dualism, telling stories of the sea's roar, the play of the waves and the deep stillness that prevails before the storm. The artist's creations are deeply personal, drawing strength from poetry, the play of color and melody. The delicate beauty of the flowers serves as a gateway to a world of emotions, where they find healing power and happiness. This artist invites us on a journey where we can experience the many faces of the sea and find a connection to its eternal, changing beauty.

At the same time, I have actively dabbled in oil painting and trained as an artist at numerous professional artist courses. For the past 7-8 years, I have worked full-time as an oil painter in my studio, first at Mäkkylä taiteilijatalo and now at Auroratalo in Espoo. Over the years, my painting style has gradually become increasingly abstract. Recently, my paintings have focused on exploring time, place and my "other world", my mental landscape. As materials for paintings, in addition to oil painting, I use acrylic primer.

106. Pauliina Ruokokoski - Espoo Art

Kuninkaantie 43, Espoo
I am an art teacher and visual artist from Kirkkonummi. In addition to my teaching work, I regularly engage in my own artistic endeavors. My studio is located in the premises of the Espoo Art Art Association, in the artist house Aurora, in Espoo. My works primarily consist of object installations and mixed-media pieces; I combine different materials and techniques. My way of exploring the environment is to play with it. I gather, group, assemble, and disassemble; small details come together to form larger wholes. Creating art, to me, means structuring the environment and exploring life. Materials and objects change their purpose and form, and history blends with the present moment.

Kungsvägen 43, ingång A., Esbo
Signhild Kempe-Järvensivu Espoo I have painted my whole life. I live in Espoo, but I come from Ostrobothnia. After my graduation from Alfa Art I have been studying portrait painting in Alfa art several years according to old masters style. Oil and acryl are near my heart. My paintings are often connected with Ostrobothnia in my childhood and youth. I want to paint a simplified reality where people will find themselves at home. The aim with my painting is that one should be able to dive into the painting and feel captured by its atmosphere. At best one should smile and think: this is a fun picture. I would like to simplify our complicated world so that the spectator will understand it better. I have naivistic subjects in my paintings, e.g. houses, nature and still life. Portrait paintin

109. Tarinakoru

Taipaleentie 244, Nurmijärvi
I work as a goldsmith in Tarinakoru with my husband, goldsmith Hannu Rantala. I design jewelry together with customers, based on their dreams and wishes, and I make my own designs, the subjects of which arise from images, memories, lived and experienced around me. The stories behind the jewelry are big and small. Words arise in my mind when designing, making or describing jewelry. For me, goldsmithing is manual work using traditional methods and sketching with a pencil. The shape conveys movement and softness, creative energy. At Yogavint, during the summer seasons, I guide the Sound Travel Relaxation with various healing instruments. Gongs, bowls, drums, among others, vibrate at their own frequency and get the body into a state of deep relaxation.

I have my design studio and workshop in an old farm, located in the small town Karkkila, Southern Finland. The countryside is an optimal working area for creative work.

I am mastering wood as a material and I prefer sustainable solutions in my projects. I'm driven by good and well thought design and craft. To reach this, it is important to use known materials and techniques in new and creative ways, and create something new long lasting and exciting.

Evitskogintie 24, Lapinkylä
I am a sculptor (BA) and biologist (MSc). Nature has always been very important to me, and it is often strongly reflected in my works. I am also interested in the mythology of indigenous peoples, especially Finno-Ugric. I find it fascinating to connect mystical elements to natural science and use them to create something new. I often assemble my ceramic works from reliefs, which I sculpt myself from the beginning. The sculpture's jewel-like relief-mosaic surface brings an interesting new dimension: the work can be viewed from a distance, but the character's entire essence is only revealed upon closer examination. I work in my own studio in Kirkkonummi.

I am interested in the juxtaposition of art, handicrafts and industrial products, the dialogue between them. The juxtaposition of inspired new and old, broken and intact, also in an intangible sense. Maybe that's why I'm working on different art-oriented projects at the same time. Art is freer, design has stricter limits. The holistic understanding of art and challenging one's own artistic language also inspire me.

Suokallionrinne 27a, Jorvas
I am a sculptor from Kirkkonummi. I represent the phenomena of nature and the experience of nature, not by imitating what I see, but by trying to understand and reach the process of creating nature, as nature creates. I observe and get inspired, I store in my mind observations of phenomena as experiences. The mind begins to solve what it sees through art, by using selected materials and by applying the possibilities of work tools. The works completed through an intuitive and expressionistic process guide the work and thus become a part of the abstract world of nature.

That is to say, my work spreads wide but there's almost always connection to nature in it.

Högbenintie 30, Raasepori
As a writer, museum director/curator and visual artist my entire career has been dedicated to the photographic medium. As a curator I have looked at, organized and engaged with the medium from its invention to contemporary works. The process for a good curator is parallel to the creative process of art making. Curation, at its essence, is taking other people’s photographs, be it 19th or 20th century, and reinterpreting it for the viewer. That same approach is central to my current series. Only the images are a combination of vintage images and my own photographs.

I am a practicing visual artist from Bristol.U.K. My aim is to create an on going body of work that relates to our landscape and the issues of environmental damage due to constant property development and the loss of habitat to wildlife. My imagery revolves around the natural world in the urban landscape, creating hybrids of animal and architectural drawings , prints and mixed media works. Although the starting point for my work is always my drawings, I have a multidisciplinary approach to image making. I incorporate elements of drawing, printmaking, photography and painting in order to create a collage on the printed surface. The end result is to provide a jigsaw like narrative to address issues on social and environmental living and question how we are using our surroundings.

This moment is filtered into color on my canvas, which can be experienced as calm or total chaos. I paint in my studio, but also outside in the urban environment or nature.

I mainly make functional ceramics in stoneware clay primarily on the pottery wheel. I found ceramics as a child and have been creating in clay ever since. During the years I lived in Stockholm, my interest in throwing on the pottery wheel took off and the dream of having my own workshop slowly grew. Last year I left the big city and my bank job and moved with my family to Ekenäs where I opened my own workshop in the same space where I took ceramics classes as a child. In addition to being a full-time ceramist, I am studying for a ceramics degree at Axxell. My ceramics can be described as stripped down, slightly playful and light in simple geometric patterns and shapes. I am inspired by small everyday moments where a nice cup that feels good in the hand can make the coffee taste better.

For several years, dance artist Susanne Montag-Wärnå has been interpreting dance in my compositions and visual art. My first paintings were exhibited in my hometown of Turku in the 1990s. For me, humor is important. When life can feel difficult, it's good to see a glimpse of comedy in everyday life. I hope to touch the audience through my art. Create an experience for all senses.

Experimenting with textiles and weaving. I sometimes plan what I'm going to paint for the day, but when I come to the studio it becomes something completely different! I mostly paint by feel. Either watercolor with thin, delicate, almost transparent birds or more rich, dark tones in acrylic or oil. There will be pensive women or semi-abstract landscapes.

I find subjects in nature, the environment, people and other living beings. Different color experiments are also really interesting, this is how I deal with different emotional states. My paintings are often pastel shades, sometimes I need stronger colors, burnt ochre, red, earth colors... I also try different additional materials, pigments, clay powder, etc. I mix them with oil paint, I get structures for my works. Giving names to the works is quite difficult, I wouldn't want to guide the viewer, everyone could see my paintings according to their own feelings and interpretations.

For me, the starting point of my work is silence and presence, as well as the experience of my own observation and the effectiveness of colors. Making is not a planned work for me, striving for a predetermined goal, but giving up knowing and opening up. Doing is also seeing, listening and dialoguing with the work, until the characters and stories begin to take you intuitively from the abstract and sometimes from the performing. I am also a passionate photographer .I have held more than 20 solo exhibitions and numerous joint exhibitions. I have been active in art administrative positions in the years 15-21. My works are in numerous private properties as well as in the public spaces of companies and in book cover illustrations. I have been teaching art classes since 2009.

I build overlapping layered of images, colors, characters and texts. Time, space and memory blur and blend in my pieces. I consider my paintings as everyday horizon, where experiences, observations and everyday coincidences get pressed and stored. Any point of the horizon is worth looking closer. As an organic continuum it gives the impression of the random life of a person, and on the other hand, her personally oriented observing of the world.

These images are important because then I see my inner visions as images end they confirm my interpretation. I like to move in nature , that´s why we moved to the bosom of nature years ago. Here you can see the changes in light and colors and the starry sky. I started using sketchbooks in 1996 in Grassina, Italy and the need is daily, they tell me a lot about my inner state of mind.

Koivulantie 45, PERTTELI (Salo)
I am a ceramicist and photographer from Salo. In my ceramic art, female figures in various forms play a significant role. Ceramic products that I produce in small series, I am increasingly focusing on animal and nature themes. In addition to my own production, I instruct ceramics courses and offer private lessons. Clay is a fascinating material where only one's own imagination sets limits. Different types of clay, modeling, decorating, and firing techniques are endless sources of inspiration. I graduated as a ceramic artisan from Forssan ammatti-instituutti in 2017 and studied photography at Muurlan Opisto from 2007 to 2009. I am a member of Turunmaan Keraamikkojen Kilta that is a guild for professional ceramic artists and artisans around Turku area.

Kyrönsuontie 244, Pitkäjärvi
I am a handicrafts and arts educator and visual artist from Somero. I work in the courtyard of an old farmhouse. In my painting process I explore historical memories that are connected to nature. The works combine the landscapes of my present and former home: the islands of Lake Saimaa and the fields and fields of Somero. Both the water bodies and the soil of the fields have a story to tell. These landscapes are linked to strong emotional ties over generations - for some, the landscapes in the works may be a wistful memory of childhood landscapes, for others they are part of a present life or a utopia.

152. Iida Ojanperä - BirdWayn Taidetupa

Suurilantie 301, Tarvasjoki
My artistic work can be summed up as a drop of ink falling on damp paper, its strands subtly expanding in many directions; those strands can take the form of ink drawings, paintings, poetry, photography, or even a figure of a fish standing on its own two feet. Whatever the technique, my works are united by the same spirit. My works transport the viewer to the phenomenal worlds of (human) nature and even deeper, beyond them. I live and work in a place surrounded by forests and field islands, which my spouse and I call the Firewood Kingdom - home to the diversity of art and nature! Nature and the silence it offers are important to me in making art. Already my childhood years on my home island of Kaskis taught me to appreciate the importance of silence in creation.

Kärsämäentie 35 B1, Turku
I'm Arita, the designer, artist and creator of CarniWear. I have worked as a graphic designer for a long time and sewed almost all the time. A couple of years ago, I started thinking about what I would become when I grow up. People around me say that I still haven't grown up, but I've finally figured out where my passion lies. It's wearable art! When I make wearable art, I can combine my graphic design and sewing skills, and create my art as I think it should be created. I want it to be made up of different fabrics and other interesting materials, to be a bit whimsical, very unique and full of beautiful colors, with a dash of 3D as an added spice! More is more! Up-cycling is also very important to me and that's why almost 90% of all the materials I use are up-cycled.

I am a 73-year-old visual artist who is still actively working and has retired as an artist. During my long almost 50-year career as an artist, I have made art using the most diverse methods. I am currently working on painting and ceramics. My paintings are mainly large-scale oil/acrylic paintings, which have become semi-abstract landscapes over the years. They often repeat elements that you could find in them from the very beginning of my career; water, mountain, flowers. trees... I also paint some pastel/watercolor works. I moved to Turku from Eastern Finland three years ago and found a lovely pottery workshop here and it just so happened that I took the clay with me. My ceramic works combine both decoration and utility, often in the form of an animal.

I am from Eckerö on the Åland-islands but since the 1980s I have lived and worked as a visual artist and as a teacher in Turku. My origins as a fisherman's son and the fact that I grew up in the countryside have certainly colored my artistic expression, not only in terms of themes, but perhaps rather when it comes to moods and reflecting my view of life in my art. In my paintings, I strive to convey something that I myself call "a longing without loss". A kind of realistic, universal and pragmatic way of tackling existential challenges. I want my paintings to primarily convey a poetic calm, an inner balance, harmony.

Jomalagårdsväg 41, Jomala
A central idea for me is the form, which should be a path to experience for the viewer who should be able to fill it in with their imagination. I like to call my paintings "objects", as you associate the paintings with the idea of a form, which came about as the end result of an inner experience or an idea. In my objects I use different numbers of shapes. They are represented in different long series and in a certain system for each object. The uniformity and symmetry of the paintings allows for growth and is given the opportunity for great variety. There are no limits here. Geometry is important in my paintings, but never as an end in itself, it wants to tell us something.

The dream of creating beauty. The pottery, the clay is my tool or the question is if maybe I am its tool...!? In my creation, I move in the borderland between utility ceramics and pure art. I manufacture on a small scale. No product is exactly the same, but my goal is to create unique items that each contain their own feeling. A feeling that makes you happy when you hold it in your hands.

My works always have a narrative, even if the work is abstract. Colors create feelings and stories. The most important thing in my production is the colorful color palette combined with the rhythmic narrative of the form. My visual language is semi-abstract. The most typical thing for me is to get to the edge of something new, in colors, shapes, observations.

Kuusikonkatu 2, Kankaanpää
Newly graduated sculptor from Satakunta University of Applied Sciences in the spring of 2023. For me, art is a way to process and present my thoughts, as well as take a stand on current problems. Nature-themed works are something I have always done because I get most of my inspiration from nature and its harmony. I am particularly interested in the interaction between man and nature, and I often use symbolism in my works. Especially natural materials such as wood, plaster and clay inspire me. I often work with mixed media instead of one material.

203. Tommi Ketonen - Galleria Tommi Ketonen

Pruukinraitti 15, Urjala
I am Tommi Ketonen, a glass artist. I specialize in unique massive glass sculptures made with the grail technique. I plan and make all the work phases of the sculptures myself. The colorful sculptures, which often contain female faces, are organic in form and recognizable by their distinctive style. In thick objects and organic forms, the optics of glass, the living of glass and light is unique, bringing the images inside the objects to life depending on the lighting and viewing angle. The professional skill of a watchmaker and the skills of a goldsmith are shown as a certain uncompromisingness and precision in making glass art. The background of the tattoo artist brings an open-mindedness to the use of colors and the processing of molten glass mass, as well as the visuality of the motifs.

Sammaljoentie 694, Sastamala
After working in Switzerland in art history and visual arts I now continue my creative work in my home region in Sastamala in the field of graphics and papermaking. My workspace is also open to those learning these techniques. I make paper from recycled materials, combining them with cellulose or plants, and the sheets created with a simple technique often continue to live as a basis for my graphics or drawings or in collages. In graphics, I use gravure printing methods combining different techniques. Etching or engraving a metal or plastic plate only gives a small idea of what the picture transferred to the paper looks like when printed. Often the subjects of my unique prints can be found in everyday details and nature. .

Lasikaari 10, Pirkkala
My art draws inspiration from classical and contemporary art themes. In my works, I combine and build a narrative from historical plots and classic stories, wrapping them in the many layers of the present. For me, art is a journey to contemplative expressiveness through figural and abstract paintings. In my art, the figurative language of painting gestures strives to create lasting connections and insightful semiotic meanings that evoke reflections and experiences in the viewers of the art.

Kreetankuja 8 C 16, Pirkkala
Born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil, I am the third generation of naïve painters in my family. I draw and paint intensively since I was very little but never thought it was a professional possibility, in fact, art was never an encouraged activity in my family. Until I was 38, shy for my childish trait, I used to paint and immediately destroy what I produced. After a very successful first exhibition in 2008 I decided to believe in my career as painter and since then I have shown my work in many countries and important events. I became a Finnish citizen in 2023 and I am now re-starting my career in Finland, looking forward to leaving a legacy in this country I love to call My home.

My images are narrative and representational. They often feature human or animal figures in their own comic-tragic worlds. I am also involved in several collaborative projects, such as Project Babel. I study visual arts and art history at the Universities of Lapland and Jyväskylä.

213. Anitta Asunta-Plane

Lietniemen tie 315, Muurame
My raku eramics style is influenced by my 22 years of Finnish culture, and later by my 35 years of living in France. In 2018 I returned to Finland, but France will always be my second home: my art and my life are a colourful mix of Scandinavian and Latin styles. The harshness of the rock clay, the black and white of the bladder burn, the colourful, geometric, patterned, relief, fretwork or glossy lustre. Details, embroideries, fabric-like effects, sometimes smooth terra-sigillata, seasoned with the iron-sulphate red clay of Lake Muuratjärvi. The clear simplicity of the North combined with Latin pomposity. This is what my bladder ceramics artwork is made of. Always a unique piece, for walls, pedestals, functional art, eye-catchers and interior decoration.

As a multi-disciplinary visual artist and composer, with an educational background in animation, I often blend traditional fine art techniques with immersive, interactive technology.

I make my own inks and paints from natural materials. In my studio, I find peace and freedom to develop my skills, deepen my relationship with art, and experiment with new ideas, while also having the opportunity to be part of a creative collective. Community is important to me, and my aim is to use my expertise for purposes that serve people beyond the individual level.

Lehtokatu 10, Jyväskylä
Hi, I'm a painter from Central Finland. I like being outdoors, like so many people who live in these regions. So landscapes and details from them continually end up in my works, and especially the feelings they evoked. I call my style abstract landscape because it contains both representational and non-representational components. I am also very fond of bringing a visible three-dimensionality, a certain sculpturesquesness to my paintings, this is a feature that is best viewed on site. The studio is located at my home, on the old veranda of a wooden house that turns 80 this year.

The technique I used was mainly metal graphics, but since 2016 I have been making unique monotypes. I hold exhibitions all over Finland and this year they are in Helsinki, Sastamala, Mikkeli and Turku. I am especially known as a developer of colored metal graphics and costume-themed works. Suits belong to my childhood because my mother was a seamstress. I made my first costume piece in 1987 and I received a State prize for them.

I'm a fulltime visual artist. I make art, because I need to. Ideas for images and stories just come in my mind, and I'm creating these in multiple forms: as pictures, text and installations. From technical point of view the most important thing is to be on a continuous journey of exploration. Content-wise the thematic approach to my art is important. Studying topics and themes and writing process go hand in hand with making the visual art pieces.

220. Milla Kyllönen – Grafiikka- ja valokuvakeskus Ratamo

Veturitallinkatu 6, Jyväskylä
I first encountered printmaking over 20 years ago during a printmaking course that was part of my studies in product design. It immediately felt like my kind of technique; its craftsmanship fascinated me! I continued studying printmaking at a community college wherever I happened to live in Finland. Now, I've been working independently at Ratamo for a few years. My main techniques include etching, aquatint, and photo-etching. I also enjoy photography, and when I delved into the world of photo-etching, I began incorporating photographs into my work. In my prints, I capture small, everyday moments—they're like condensed versions of the whole. I'm inspired by the seasons, shadows and light, as well as lines, whether they're in architecture, nature, or even power lines. I also do cyanotype.

I have published the following dissertation; ‘Art and the Unconscious. A Semiotic Case Study of the Painting Process’. I trust my intuition and the goal is to remove any resistances of mental blockage that are affecting the painting process, which can be compared to a jazz musician improvising. Meditation is also part of my painting process. Emptiness and silence give a possibility to become creative. Nature is important to me and I seek to become one with nature, trying to immerse myself into it. I have participated in art exhibitions in Finland and abroad. My artworks can be found in several private collections.

222. Kristine Nordling

Kivääritehtaankatu 6 A II krs, Jyväskylä
My art consists of plaster- and broncesculptures, or series of plaster sculptures of different sizes, portraying humans. Some sculptures are left as plain-surfaced casts, and some are patinated and pigmented. Plaster has an inspiring sketch-like style that I develop further in my work. My series of sculptures are transforming and searching for new forms inspired by thought- and work processes. My work is inspired by exploration, in which a human is the center of the interpretation. The human I portray interweaves themself into the present and the depiction from art history and their confluence. The influence from fine art blends and emerges as maidens, youth, and a woman figure based on and springing up from femaleimage themes.

I wander in the gardens of the forests. On light trails, I feel like I belong on the trail. Belonging to nature, the wind, the smells. Nature smells like past times on the skin. Time doesn't matter, moments do. Everything vibrates in the wind. Encountered moments, places, landscapes, animals, people leave traces on us. Paintings are created from traces. Stories are born. I seize small moments in my paintings. I engrave memories and feelings on fabrics with acrylic paints. In my paintings, color is a feeling, a state of mind. I work in Jyväskylä at the Rifle Factory as part of the community of visual artists in Tourula. Nature and emotions are my biggest inspirations. The picture of me in my studio was taken by Maija Keskinen. Maarit Siltamäki

Hi! I am Nina Huisman, an illustrator, graphic designer, photographer and visual artist from Jyväskylä. I work on a variety of commissions, in many different media and styles. I am an observer. In my work, small things open up to address bigger phenomena. Worlds are flattened into surfaces, sliding into one another. Often my work touches upon the themes of outsiderness, belonging, otherness, the right to exist. Surfaces, reflections and levels create a feeling that what one sees is not necessarily what one is looking at. Different levels ask different questions.

For me art is a spiritual process of my soul in which I describe the history of my soul and its transformations. The way I feel many eras, places and levels within myself. The personal is also the universal. Human awareness and its evolution interest me. The way different events initiate our beliefs and views and the way we create ourselves a protecting shell that covers our true essence until we realize that it is possible to let go of this shell. We dare to see and show our true light and strength. I use tempera, acrylic, oil and watercolour in my work.

I am particularly inspired by the garden's light, contrasts and structure, as well as the shapes and colors of the useful plants. Gardening is important to me, which is why useful plants, which are undervalued in painting, often feature prominently in my works. I see beauty in the modesty of useful plants and strive to bring it out expressively. My way of painting is physical and intuitive. I paint my works with acrylic paints, which best support my strong use of line. I am an art teacher FM for education. I work as a visual arts teacher and creative designer in a marketing office.

Art has been with me since I was a child. I grew into an artist as I grew up. Every time I start a new job, I also start a new world. It is such a fascinating idea that it carries through a wide variety of life situations and creates meaning for doing things. Animals, plants and children often appear in my works. Color seasons vary, but as a rule my color palette is fresh and rich. The basis of my artistic work is observing the everyday environment. In my works, small experiences and images of a fleeting moment become part of something larger and thus acquire deeper meanings when they meet the viewer. It is important for me to work in the field of art freely, diversely and looking for something new.

I am an artist who loves color and likes to share knowledge by holding courses/workshops for young and old. My painting is mainly acrylic or oil, and I paint every day. My main wish in my art is to convey thoughts, feelings and to pass on a reflection to the viewer. Painting should be a nice feeling. a way to breathe and art should give peace to the soul. My curiosity for different materials means that I am not satisfied in my eagerness to search further. And when painting art in public, I sometimes find that little extra that can be the color or shape that leads to perfection. Connecting the human being to the image is a peaceful way of creating for me. My color scheme is strong and these are painted in dynamic images as well as significant fun titles.

Via a patina process, the surface becomes dark and acquires additional nuances when polished. From mainly casting cottage bells and name tags, production has moved on to larger commemorative plaques, church bells, various mortar models and gravestone symbols, etc.

238. Inka Hannula - Makers' Gallery

Kirkkopuistikko 18, Vaasa
I am a Tampere-based artist working with painting and multidisciplinary projects. I paint both my own and joint paintings with visual artist Teemu Raudaskoski. We carry out joint paintings simultaneously on the same canvas, continuing each other's painting results. We do not plan the works in advance, but let improvisation and collaboration drive the process forward. The creation of the works is influenced by the music playing in the background, the dialogue between the two artists and coincidence. The end result of the painting process is always a surprise, and afterwards we no longer always recognize which mark both of them have made. During Konstrundan, Makers' Gallery displays our colourful abstract collective paintings.

239. Ann-Sofi Kattilakoski - Vasa konstgrafikers verkstad

Skolhusgatan 53/Koulukatu 53, Vasa/Vaasa
I have been working with printmaking for over ten years. The variety of techniques and forms of expression sustains interest year after year. My works tell about both everyday life and dreams. Most of the time I work around a theme and when I start I move in a chaotic world of ideas. I see parts of topics and forming pieces into a whole is an interesting journey. Sketching and experimenting with techniques and colours are a big part of my working process. When the work is finished, it tells me stories that I didn't even know about when I started. Welcome to explore my works!

239. Maire Kesseli - Vaasan Taidegraafikot Stalli

Koulukatu 53 Stalli ,Kasarmialue, Vaasa
By walking in nature and taking photographs, I find subjects. Photos I use in photogravy. I often continue the work by adding color and reprinting the work. In a way, the work takes with it and provokes new ideas, which changes the previous vision of the implementation of the work. Shades of yellow and green can be found in my work. Monotype is the combination of different techniques and colors. I also do lino engraving and dry needle drawing. The graphics are interesting and at the workshop we get acquainted with new methods with other graphic designers.

239. Sara Koskinen - Vasa Konstgrafiker

Skolhusgatan 53, Vasa
Since 2016 I have been working with printmaking, mainly with gravure printing in metal printmaking. In copper plates, I etch my pictures, which are often colorful with many details. I am inspired by the wild nature and fairy tales in all its forms. This can be seen in my imaginative works. My etchings are very time-consuming and are therefore quite small. It's exciting to explore how much a small picture can tell. In recent years, I have also started working with gouache, which is an opaque watercolor. It breaks in well with the art prints when you instead get to paint with a brush and explore another art medium.

Colors and atmosphere is the most important elements of my art. I make art from my observations, based on my moods and experiences. I am interested in the state of being between sleep and wakefulness, as well as genuine experiences of nature. I get my subjects from both nature and the built environment. I`m interested in printmaking the infinited diverse spectrum of techniques, which always allows me to find a new perspective on the subject. Sometimes I want to make approachable and expressive pictures, and sometimes my expression is very abstract. In resent years I have mostly made painterly monotypes.

244. Susanne Broända - ART - KONST - TAIDE

Långkärrvägen 5, Iskmo
I’m an artist from Iskmo who mainly paint in acrylic and ink on printmaking paper but also creates sculptures from wood, metal, and rope. My absolute favorite motif, no matter in which form of expression, are birds. These birds are stripped down in their figurative language, and I usually place them in a form of abstract worlds and existences. I describe my art as a mixture between wakefulness and dreams because with it I want to build a bridge between the intangible and the mundane. The background to my creations is an alternative spiritual view of life and my major sources of inspiration are inner personal development and the enigmatic. I’ve always felt a strong connection to animals, and the energy of life and it’s this sensitive to energies that I use as one of my tools when creating.

Storhagagränd 1, TERJÄRV
I am a freelance photographer who runs my creative business as a counterbalance to my other work commitments. I have been photographing for over 30 years and founded my company in 2023 after being asked several times to work as a photographer at different occasions. The camera is almost always with me and when it's not, the cell phone camera will have to do. The idea to participate in Konstrundan was born during last year's Konstrunda when some of my truck photos were exhibited at the SA Airbrush Saloon and therefore I now rent a corner at Simon's during Konstrundan 2024.

Pitkänsillankatu 1-3, Kokkola
I am a visual artist (Master's degree) and art teacher (MA) who moved to Kokkola in 2023. In making art for me, creative play and multi-layered thinking work during the making of the image are important. I experience painting as an intuitive dialogue with the constructed image and as a riddle of each work, which I can solve with the help of colours, lines and shapes. I often paint landscape, character-based and abstracted colour surfaces that mirror inside and outside feelings and atmospheres.

Hiukanpiha 25, OULU
I am a visual artist from Oulu. My techniques are two-dimensional paintings using different techniques, nowadays mostly oil paintings. Nature and the living environment give plenty of subjects to think about and experience by inviting you to paint. In addition, art history and social phenomena affect the expression. I experience pictorial expression as a strong personal means and a need to bring my thoughts to be seen. The doors of my studio are open to Konstrundan visitors in the Hiukkavaara barracks area in K2 Taiteilijatalo, room number 231. I am a member of the Association of Artists, Lapland Artists' Association, Oulu Taiteilijaseura ry-63 and K2 Taiteilijatalo ry.

I am Ritva Niemelä, a visual artist from Oulu. I get my inspiration for artistic work from nature. I practice photography and use the photos I take as a starting point for my work. When I photograph, I study shadows and shapes and their multiplicity. In my work, I may repeat the same shape and thus look for a new whole for that shape. Colors are strongly present in my works, they fascinate and have always energized my work.

Asemakatu 12, Oulu
I paint unique oil paintings in my Queen Art studio in the old stone courtyard of Vikkulankulma. I am fascinated by history, the layers of time and old paintings, as well as broadly music and its past composers. When inspired, I weave my own compositions from them in the terrain of my mind, wich I paint as multi-layered and meandering stories on canvas. I participated in Konstrundan for the first time last summer, and the people of Oulu were excited and grateful to get to know the milieu of Vikkulankulma in the center of Oulu and also my art.

Mäkelininkatu 41 LH, OULU
I am a sculptor who graduated from Kankaanpää Art School in 2007 and currently live in Oulu. In my works, I often deal with vulnerability, time and change. The starting point is always either a three-dimensional shape or a material, the working of which creates an association with the final subject. The message of the work can be serious and sometimes even brutal, but it is often also spiced with a touch of humour. At my studio in the Kakru Art Space, you can get acquainted with the background and techniques of my works.

269. Heidi Toivainen - Komun talo

Valtatie 53, Oulu
I am an artist from Oulu and I paint oil paintings. I take my work seriously but not frowning. For me, painting is a game in which the common rhythm formed by shapes and colors plays an essential part. Painting involves a mystery, a wordless world that motivates you to continue working again and again. Painting is about wondering and constant uncertainty. I think that too much certainty as a constant state of being is not good for a painter.

Pikisaarentie 15 B, Oulu
My expression is characterised by the specificity of the small and the common. The basic themes of my work are light, botany and trees, I love branches and wild urban nature. I live and work by the sea and water is an important element and theme in my art. For me, visual art begins where words end. I collect moments of silence and turn them into images. My tools are digital photography and video, cyanotype printing and off-camera photography. To finish the cyanotype images printed on thin paper, I use encaustic, which makes my works translucent and glowing in the light. The size and format of my works varies from jewelry to environmental art.

272. Riikka Kontio – Kulttuurikiihdyttämö TILA

Pikisaarentie 15 B , Oulu
I am a painter from Oulu. I paint with acrylic and acrylic inks in addition to oil paints. Besides brushes, I also paint with fabrics and sponges. Often I do the painting by washing, removing the colour from the top of the lower layer – light. In my almost abstract paintings, you can often find a figurative element. I also work with used materials that have collected in corners, making assemblage. My approach to the human being is holistic and this also influences my artistic work. I am inspired by themes that deal with the human mind and the meanings it produces. Emotions such as terrible shame and protective anger fascinate me. Human fragility and pain invite me to work.

272. Sirja-Erika Virpikari - Kulttuurikiihdyttämö TILA

Pikisaarentie 15, Oulu
The colors of my works are strong and have strong emotions. The strong connection with nature is clear. The animal figures that often appear in my work act as symbolic signs for me. In my works, I pondered the strangeness of life and death. I try to describe the transience of moments and unlock the hidden meanings of things. Mostly my works are paintings (acrylic, mixed media), but I also make sculptures (wood, metal and clay) and environmental art.

Huvipolku 3, Haukipudas
I am a visual artist and a big fan of Italy. The "Bootland" is still a great mystery to me, but a major source of inspiration. As an artist, I value beauty and goodness and I hope that it is also transmitted through the works. I get excited about new materials, but mostly I use oil, acrylic and pastel painting. I often add charcoal, silver leafs, decoupage and different cracking methods to my works. Old book covers and documents are favourite materials, but I also like the roughness of concrete, which I often use in my phototransfer technique.

I am Pirita Pernu-Lehtinen, founder and owner of Pirita Design Oy from Sodankylä. I am an artisan by training and I founded my company in 1998. I design and make knitwear from linen and baby alpaca yarn. I ended up with linen a bit by accident during my studies, but its properties when knitting started to interest me more than other materials. Linen is challenging to knit, and it requires long-term development work to make the product desirable. But the end result is rewarding – the shape comes out well in the linen. The store and production facility are located in Sodankylä. We do everything from design to sewing and finishing the garment here ourselves. The clothes are knitted with an automatic knitting machine, sewn by hand and, if necessary, the size and color are adjusted.

I make nature-themed paper decorations from recycled material, in which Finnish wild berries are represented. My watercolors are mosaic-like, colorful and the subjects deal with everyday life and nature. I print cards, posters and stickers from my paintings. My products have been granted the Made in Finland sign and can be found in the online store

I want to point out here that here in the north we too can choose a creative field just like any other job. We need artists and creative people to solve the collective challenges before us.

Hi, I'm Laura. I make eyewear using Finnish natural materials. The front of the frame is made of birch bark and the temples of reindeer antler. The details and decorations in the frames include genuine wild flowers picked from surrounding nature or lace decorations. Each frame is unique, as my work is guided by the limitations set by the materials. All work steps are done at the Sodankylä workshop. There is a showroom next to my workspace and from the window you can see directly into the workshop. I am an optician by profession and if necessary I can sell you prescription lenses. I treat my frames as functional art, because glasses are most often a must-have accessory that can be used to emphasize personality and values.
