Pencils and white gel pen on paper

The art work is about endangered snowy owls that are living in Northern Finland. I wanted to draw birds that are existing in my home country. I added to the background arctic hills, dead pine tree and northern light which are typical in Northern Finland. I wanted to create a story that stays open for the viewers to imagine what is happening in the picture.

I am Finnish visual artist and illustrator educated as an art and psychology teacher, master of arts. Diversity of nature, psychology and Surrealism inspire me. My main mediums are pencils and aquarelles. Realistic pencil technique is a counterforce in a hectic lifestyle that we live.
