My art works are based on old and new stories, sciences, art history and various mysteries of human life. Besides my printmaking and book art I also work as a freelance writer and graphic designer. I have had several solo and group exhibitions in Finland since 1980 and in Japan since 1990. I also have participated in many group exhibitions in Europe, USA and Canada. Studying Japanese language and old woodblock prints is my continuous passion. I never get tired in examining the dictionaries and ensyclopedies to find out their secrets.
