Bio

I am an interdisciplinary artist, studying enviroment-care and working in my studio in Turku, Finland. I also teach creative writing and work as a culture producer. Occasionally I perform solo, but mainly im interested in collaborations with other creators.

My work combines poetry, performance-, and visual arts.

I write music and play a few instruments.


I get inspiration from biology, science fiction, fantasy, queer-arts, feminism, DIY culture, nature, dancers, anarchism, science, surrealism, musicians, nerds and geeks & cinema and visual art. ​
