ART IS LIFE, LIFE IS ART

'Painting is like clear your mind, I think.

Creativity based on millimeters at my work as architect which I am trying to get rid of my paintings. Not a line in my work is not dragged ruler, arch and round shape rather daring run free. Palette Knife bring noon to work with colors and shapes of freedom to the world, then the most important thing is the moment and the mood. I like colors, but my works are not a joy of color, rather subdued and thoughtful. If I used my favorite color, my work would be blue. Each work I give a piece of me, and part of my memories, which I want to share.

I admit to being curious and experimental, I try often same theme in different techniques. It gives a new dimension to my works. Bronze, I have found a great new challenge. Challenges fascinate me, this material is itself a strong, but in thousand degrees so delicate, success is not self-evident. Numerous steps, diligence, and yet the result can be unpredictable - art. I have also tried graphics, I recognize that it fascinates, but whether it is a return to millimeters.
Currently operates as president of Europe Culture Association in Finland, www.ekynetti.com. She says it has received through the hobby of an entirely new friend to the field. Encouragement from friends, she recognizes the importance. We are different, we can see a difference in our environment, we feel and interpret in various ways, still belong together.
Art is timeless, art is life.
