ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Who do you design for and what is your style?
I design for a variety of customers and markets including women's apparel/accessories and wallpaper. I'm naturally drawn
into watercolours, bold colours and textures; I enjoy experimenting and combining different techniques in my work.
What inspires you?
Hailing from Finland I've always been influenced by the vivid patterns Marimekko. Now living in London obviously I go to
many galleries and museums, art is a big inspiration for me. But often inspiration just comes from everyday things, if I walk
down the street and see a beautiful texture on the pavement I immediately want to get working!
What do you love about being a designer?
I love so many aspects of it - research and getting inspired, drawing/painting/photographing, playing about with Photoshop
& Illustrator and stumbling into something that I didn't plan on but looks great. The best thing is to able to create more
beauty in the world.
What else would you like us to know about you?
I'm very curious about the world and have many hobbies and interests: music, dance, art, knitting/crafts... I also train in
many physical skills like gymnastics and taekwondo. I like to keep busy!
