I was born in Mikkeli, Finland in 1968. I mainly work with photography, but I also do other visual arts.
I live and work now in Otava, but I work a lot in different parts of Finland and further areas. I completed the photographer degree in Tampere at VVI Oy in 2006. After that, I have taken many different courses and studied independently. I completed bachelor's degree in fine arts in 2021 at the Turku Arts Academy.
Typically, I deal with the environment in my art, make observations about it and bring out things that might easily be overlooked. Documentary is often part of the artistic expression of my pictures. It tell about the change in culture, settlement and industry, consumer culture and our own values.
I don't want to tie myself to any specific technique, I try new ways and combine different techniques depending on the series.
In addition to my own artistic work, as a photographer I also do client work and commissioned works for the clients' desired destinations.
