I was born in Finland, and came to the US when I was 19 for a visit - and I'm still here. I spent some time in Seattle and on the coast of California, but now I've 'come home' to Maine, where I live in Bucksport with my husband Bob, my daughter Zoe, a horse and four cats.

I'm self-taught, and my paintings and photographs reflect the inspiration I take from nature.

I expect to add a lot more designs soon, and I hope - if you like what I have done so far - that you will come back soon and see what's new.
