Hi! I'm a Finnish artist specializing in real and imaginary animals. I especially love to draw horses and horse-like creatures due to my riding background. My main mediums are colored pencils, pastel pencils and PanPastel. I also like to experiment with other mediums such as water-mixable oil paints and digital art.

Frequently asked questions

What paper do you use?

I use Pastelmat paper by Clairefontaine. I love its sandpaper-like surface that allows to layer the colors very effortlessly. I also like the color selection of the Pastelmat papers. I prefer to draw on a colored paper instead of white.

What pencils do you use?

Colored pencils: mostly Derwent Lightfast and Faber-Castell Polychromos

Pastel pencils: mostly Stabilo Carbothello and Pitt Pastel

How do you do your backgrounds?

I use PanPastel to create my backgrounds. It's dry pastel that can be applied like a paint, with a sponge. I love the soft and blurry feel that I'm able to get with it.

Are you available for commissions?

No, I'm currently focusing on my personal art.

Do you sell prints?

Yes! I sell prints through Society6 which is a US based company that sells print-on-demand products and ships worldwide. Click here to access my store.

Do you sell originals?

I currently sell originals only to Finland.
