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

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

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 (2021) with Arja Karhumaa.
