ADDITIONAL SKILLS AND INTERESTS

My greatest skill is my artistic ability. Many people have praised my original ideas and creative approach at things. Especially my way of depicting characters, their expressions and gestures, has been noted. I’ve also dabbled in writing, both in Finnish and English, so I can create content that way as well. Creative work all around is my passion. I’m also curious and I enjoy learning new things, even if the beginning might be frustrating.

I’ve been interested in nature and especially animals ever since I was small. Much of my time has gone into studying animals and things to be able to draw them accurately. In addition, mythology has been a dear hobby of mine for many years, and in my adult life it has sparked interest in history and foreign cultures.
