Welcome to my pages.


I’m a student of life; I see beauty in nature, people and the world around me, small details and complete view. Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept, art would not exist. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have about myself and the world I live in. I do not limit myself to one medium, style, or concept.

Inspiration and ideas change. My knowledge changes and grows. Each piece I create is simultaneously an extension from the past, where I’ve come from and what I’ve learned, as well as a preview of the future, where I’m going.

I do not classify myself as just a photographer, as some might think from looking at my work. I am a sculptor, a painter, a photographer, an artist.

If a viewer stops for just a moment to view and reflect on a photograph, a photo collage or a painting I have created, then I have succeeded in my work.

  1. I’ve had a browse through your galleries. You will probably notice my footprints here and there 🙂 I find some of your work very striking and unusual. I am always drawn to shades of blue, and h=yet monochrome can be so spectacular as well.
    I am delighted to welcome a fellow Finn to my cohort of followers – thank you. May your creativity continue to flourish,. Raili
