I’m a Finnish artist dedicated to character performance in animation, comics and illustration. Apart from a strong traditional art background I also have a decade of experience in Vancouver’s TV animation industry. I graduated from Capilano University’s 2D animation program in 2010 and received Canadian Permanent Residency in 2014. My second shift is comics: after being published in varied anthologies, both collaborating with writers and writing my own short comics, I’m currently scripting my first longform comic. In my spare time I roam beaches, attempt to attract cats (or mer-cats if I’m at the beach), draw portraits of interesting trees and cross-country ski to the middle of nowhere whenever I can. My pronouns are she/her.

Expertise:
–2D character animation in Adobe Animate, Harmony, or handdrawn! Builds, posing, animating, special poses, revising.
–Storyboard revisions
