Previously, I graduated from Turku Arts Academy in 2019, specializing in printmaking. During my studies in Turku, I went for an exchange in The Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp in Belgium in 2018. I have been a member of The Association of Finnish Printmakers and Turku Printmakers Association since 2019. Exhibitions The latest exhibition I participated in was Kuvan Kevät 2022 – MFA Degree Show of the Academy of Fine Arts, University of the Arts Helsinki. During 2022, I was also selected to participate in the International Exhibition of prints and artist’s books in Rijeka in Croatia. In the beginning of 2021, me and my colleague arranged our first independent exhibition Machine Translation after graduating from Turku Arts Academy. In 2018, I was selected to exhibit my works among two other young artists in the exhibition called Young Printmakers 2018 / Nuoret Taidegraafikot 2018.
