Abstract and Traditional Paintings
I have always had a strong interest in drawing and painting. I have been complimented many times on my sense of color, regardless of the subject or media.
I have been involved in art since my childhood in Lahti, Finland. I took classes and began painting professionally as an oil painter, creating primarily realistic landscapes and still life. In recent years, I have attended a wide variety of art workshops and have broadened my repertoire of subjects and media to include abstract and traditional works, utilizing watercolors, acrylics, mixed media, and collage. I have received a number of awards at juried art shows.
