The space in between bounders interests me, the dilemma of existence and nothingness, the contradistinction of consciousness and unconscious is some way present in almost every work. In recent years I have concentrated on installations. I have used various basic materials such as coal, bones, stone but also for instance plastic and videos. Aside from artistic working I have found it very interesting and exhilarating to give workshops in self-expression with arts. It has led me to do communal art projects and the participation of visitors has become a more important factor in my art. Their memories and experiences become a visible part of the works.

I have graduated in Fine Arts in Kankaanpään taidekoulu/University of Applied Sciences, specialized in sculpture. I have had Advanced special studies in Tallinn University of Fine Arts and degree in Art History in Tampere University. I have also studied in art therapy in educational program of The Finnish Association for Mental Health.
