Painters degree from Free Art School, Helsinki Finland, includes 4 years of full time studies, of which 1 year for Diploma works.
In my diploma I concentrated on the theme of motherhood and mother and child bond. My theme has been personal since I am mother of one child, at the time 4-years of age. Tutors for my work were Jukka Korkeila and Camilla Vuorenmaa.
My diploma works are seven paintings in acrylics, egg tempera, oil colors, video and installation from children clothes. Works have been exhibited in July 2020 in Forum Box (Helsinki), in August 2020 Hirvitalo (Tampere) and in October 2020 Cable Factory (Helsinki).
My work was supported by Taike’s grant.
Graduation process also included giving lecture, writing essay and text for catalog, also giving and receiving critique on works.
