a few word about me​

Hello! I'm an illustrator and graphic designer specializing in visually communicating about animals and the environment. My biggest passion is to make illustrations that celebrate the magic of animals. When I'm not illustrating or designing I'm mainly hanging out with dogs. I’m fluent in both Finnish and Swedish and have very good skills in English.
