I am 31 years old and I was born in Vihti, a small place in Southern Finland where my family had a farm. Currently I live in the city but I dream of returning to the peace and quiet of the countryside.

Drawing has always been very natural to me. I've never deliberately decided that I'm going to start drawing, it has just always been a part of me and something I really enjoy doing. I was probably an easy child because I was often entertained just by giving me a pen and paper and that hasn't actually changed over the years. Drawing is still one of the best things in the world if you ask me.

When I was young our family had dogs, rabbits and sheep. There was also horses in our neighbourhood which made this horse loving girl very happy. I started riding lessons at the age of 11 and since then horses have been a very important part of my life. That's why they have also been my favorite subject on my drawing table, along with other animals. I feel that horses and animals have certain depth in them that humans simply don't have. This is also something that I wish to bring out through my art.
