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.

Aw man, after so long of watching other people's nuzlocke comics, I've finally been doing my own! Thanks for the inspiration to do such a thing. I had previously started a few but could never finish them, but my latest project is 186 pages and still going! :D You're art is an incredible inspiration and I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Without you and other nuzlocke artists out there, I never would've thought to do my own :3

Aaaaah, this is such a heartwarming message! Thank you so much for the kind words! :heart: It's the greatest compliment to me when my work has inspired others to work on theirs. I'm so glad to hear you have made so much progress with your comic and I wish you all the best with the project! Now I feel like continuing mine haha!

:DThank you! And you totally should! It would be awesome! I didn't think I would get as far as I did, but thanks to a bunch of my online buddies I'm able to push through and continue I've been having a blast with it. Never had so much fun drawing in my life!

Love your works. :D

Aah thank you! Been a fan of your art for years now so it means a lot to hear you like my work! 🧡
