I am an artist working with text, image, installation, publication and performance. The starting point for my work is often personal and I combine it with a conceptual exploration of the themes that emerge from the work. The small and the everyday take on an important and ambiguous role. Language and communication are recurring themes in my work. By observing the relationship of language to the image and the body, the work creates connections to poetry. 

I hold an MFA in Time and Space Arts from the University of the Arts Helsinki, BA in photography from LAB Lahti Institute of Design and Fine Art, and B.Soc.Sc. in Communication & Media Studies from the University of Helsinki. I am a co-founder of the publishing collective Multipöly with Arja Karhumaa.

I live in Helsinki, Finland. In 2024 my work is supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
