Anna Helminen

Hi! My name is Anna Helminen (she/her), and I'm a visual artist, illustrator and graphic novel artist from Tampere, Finland. I enjoy creating atmospheres, bold lines and the challenge of different projects. Sharing ideas and working together with the client makes a strong base for the illustration process. I can work in Finnish and English and am always interested in new projects!

I am an experienced visual storyteller, and I have illustrated multiple children's books. Stepping into children's world and visualizing it sparks my interest and brings me joy time after time. I work with traditional methods as well as digitally, depending on what works best for the project.
