My Bio


I am a mainly self-taught artist from Finland. I am currently working as an architect but I still aim to find time to create art on the side. I enjoy creating and appreciating art as a hobby but I also do take commissions and sell my art at conventions (in Finland).

I started off as a traditional artist but picked up digital techniques along the way and now I do both. My tools and techniques in both vary very much but I like to stick with watercolours and inks in the traditional side and with Photoshop CS6 + Wacom Cintiq 13HD and Procreate + iPad Pro a in the digital side.

My main inspirations are music; some of my pieces are heavily inspired by a certain song and some just purely illustrations of a song, nature; wildlife, sky, landscapes; other artists; mythology; video games.

DeviantART is still my main site but some of my artwork is uploaded exclusively on my Tumblr and/or Instagram. I also make occasional process videos on YouTube and stream my process. Nowadays I prefer to use Twitch for streaming.

I hope you like what you see here!

FAQ/art usage: COMING SOON

I do not take art trades, collabs, requests or point commissions.

Commissions price chart and ToS: COMING SOON

Contact: If you have any questions about anything or just want to say hi feel free to contact me! I am quite busy with my studies and other things so I might not reply instantly. Also, even if my commissions are closed you can still ask me for a quote or if I would be willing to do something next time my commissions are open.

I'm really unhappy with the way dA promotes sales of someone who sells AI generated works. It's as if this place isn't even trying to pretend it cares about artists. With allt he socials and sites going downhill I decided that I need an email newsletter. I'm slowly working on it but this spring is very busy so it may take me some time to set it up. Keep your eyes peeled though! I want at least one reliable way for people to receive news of my latest work etc. Just letting you know that's in progress!

Hi ShadeofShinon. I cruised your gallery and am impressed. Your portrayal of animals is almost spiritual with a Native American slant. I find it beautiful.

My name is Jeani Rector, and I am the editor of the established (since 2009), award-winning ezine and print magazine titled The Horror Zine. We are not just horror; we publish surreal, mystery, sci-fi, and "Twilight Zone." As for art, we are not specifically seeking dark images; we prefer talent over theme.

I was wondering if you'd be interested in allowing us to display some of your work in a future issue. There is no charge, you would get your own page, and you would receive complete credit, including a link to your art gallery. To see how we have displayed other artists, go here:

If you are interested, or want to learn more, please email me at and I thank you.
