"My great-grandmother was a milliner in the Northern Finland. I followed her path when I graduated as a dressmaker and a designer – I worked as an designer in the hat factory Fredriksson for a few years. Then I moved on to children's wear, designing for Reima-Tutta and Seppälä for the next years. I love colours and patterns, and I could play with them as much as I liked!
My grandad was a photographer, as were his four children. I got infatuated with the visual storytelling as well. I started studying graphic design and visual culture, graduating as an MA from the Aalto University in 2014.
I have also carried on my dressmaking skills by making a craft book (published by Tammi) and designing craft models for craft journal Novita. My graphic design works you can see on my other webpage Suunnittelustudio Pippuriina.
On my left hand I run the everyday life of an organic cereal farm in a small village Satakunta, and raise Finnish horses and my three lovely sons.
As an illustrator I enjoy new projects and the challenges they bring. Every project is a chance to create something new and also learn new things about the world! "
