Since I was a small child I have always been interested in art, but my personal interest in sculpture did in fact arise when I was staying at home with my children during their growth period. In sculpture the various forms and working with clay fascinated me greatly and my passion to develop in creating this material was so strong that I in 1984 decided to try my wings and joined the Sculpture Group of Veikko Myller which group I since then have been a member of with exception for a short period during the years 1898-1992 when designer Veijo Ulmanen was my teacher. In my current style you can notice simplification in shaping but also at the same time a clear realistic tendency.

In my works I have mostly examined different aspects of the life of a woman under different time periods. The latest of my sculptures descripe those changes in a woman´s clothing which have taken place under the last centuries, from headgears and gowns to an release from them.

The other theme in my latest works is the amidrable feeling of an unity which has been acchieved by an intimate co-operation and fluency of the movement especially by the dancing pairs in different dance arts.

I wanted to have more dramatic in my works, wherefore the latest of them mostly have got a black patina, instead of the green one, which earlier was my favorite. However, in some works I have decided for the green patina to accentuate the lightness of the artwork.
