I am a painter from Maaninka, Finland. Maaninka is now part of Kuopio city. I studied visual arts in North Karelian Polytehnic of Joensuu. First oil paintings I have done in 1978 and painted ever since more or less actively. At the beginning my works
were originally Surrealistics, and later included landscapes and portraits. Realistic works I have used a number of different classical painting techniques. Theme consists of seashore paintings, lake and nature sites.
