My Bio

I'm a 36 year old woman from Finland. I started drawing actively again in 2013 after a 10 year brake so I'm working hard to bring my skills up to speed.

I prefer to do traditional art and colored pencils are my most used medium. I also try to learn watercolors and create mixed-media paintings. I like to use high quality and light fast materials and artist grade papers. Faber Castell Polychromos are my beloved colored pencils and I use Talens Rembrandt paints. My preferred papers are by Hahnemühle and Fabriano.

I'm also a passionate gamer and my dream is to make some good quality fan art for the games I love. Especially older games from the 90's and early 2000.

I'm also a passionate consumer of animation movies. Mainly Disney and Dreamworks. I love the Western style of animation and cartoon drawing although Ginga Nagareboshi Gin was a huge part of my childhood and still is one of the best animations that I've seen. As a child Tao Tao, Nils Holgersson and Animals of Farthing Wood were also my favorites.

New Instagram

1 min read
Oh I almost forgot! I finally decided to split my Instagram into two separate accounts for Finnish/English. New account: The new account is 100% about art and will only feature my newer works. My old account is a more goofy art/personal account that also includes all my old stuff, however, the language will be 100% Finnish so unless you speak Finnish, you won't understand a single word.

So, I have no idea what's going on with DeviantArt these days but I thought I'd stop by and say hello :o) Since the end of February I've been studying with the Doodle Warriors online school. Basically digital portraits. The teacher is Angel Ganev who some of you might know. I took the jump to digital art as I felt like traditional media was preventing me from working the way I would want to and it was very taxing and slow to begin with. With everything that has been going on in the world overall, relying on traditional supplies didn't seem feasible anymore. I have reached the point where I get to render my portraits. I'm still not happy with the quality but it's WAY better than anything I did before so I might start posting here again. I won't be very active on here still but don't be shy, come and say hi and I will respond when I can!

Yeah....after the most recent update on this site, I think it's finally time for me to get outta here. Not only is the Notification - section a complete and utter mess now, I also don't like to see constant Core - ads being stuffed in my face.I will leave my profile here so people can still get hold of my reference photos. If you want to keep up with my stuff then head on over to:

Thankyou Kindly For The Watch :D

You are very welcome :)

Thank you for the badge. I dont understand how i have not found your art til now- it is amazing! I love how we had almost the same ideas for Inktober - the snake and Spirit :D.

Thank you so much <3 Yeah InkTober has been really fun. I've been following both the official site and a Finnish one on Instagram. It's almost scary how certain peoples brain works so similar when it comes to the ideas :D

I just do it for myself mostly even if I use the hashtag. Also so much fun seeing what others draw and come up with for ideas.

Yeah even when you dont have a them even.

Thanks for the llama 😍

I knew a llama once. Complicated fellow. Went by Albert. Odd name for a llama. Stranger still, the name on his harpoon gun license was Kevin. The license could have been fake, or stolen, but the DNA test came back with the same answer. Kevin Llamason. 73. Organ donor. Person of Interest.

Very suspicious.

But it wasn't enough to evict him. His references were checkered. His credit was good. Better than mine, even. So I let him stay. Pending the results of a series of wacky physical challenges to determine roommate compatibility. Standard tests really. Belching, licking and hairiness, determined by a painstaking strand count. Tolerance to noxious bodily stench. Turing. All failed. He blamed his allergies. Lightweight.

But I was willing to overlook that. A good roommate can be like a brother-in-law for life. It's all about compromise. Which he was unwilling to do. Spitting. It's a disgusting habit and he demanded that I stop. He could not be moved on this one point. Very unreasonable. No flexibility.

So under the cover of high noon, he fled. He took with him a failed friendship, an obviously optimistic dread of the future and my sixth favorite toothbrush! I have never felt so betrayed. That toothbrush was like a toothbrush to me. But at least he's gone. And good riddance. That guy was way too much of a chick magnet, and who needs that poultry drama? ヽ(ಠ_ಠ)ノ
