Hi! My name is Eeva Nikunen and I am an illustrator located in Vantaa. I specialise in decorative art, book illustration and book covers.

My favourite mediums to work with are oil paints and graphite pencils, although I do sometimes work with digital mediums as well.

I started my creative career in graphic design. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree, I spent a few years working at a game studio while also freelancing as a web designer creating websites for rock bands. And after studying display design at the University of Arts in London, I worked in visual merchandising. I’ve been working as a full time illustrator since 2014.

I create my art in my home art studio in a little suburban town, where I live with my black rescue cat Willow.

If you feel like my art style would be a perfect fit for your project, or you’re interested in licensing some of my artwork, please don’t hesitate to send me an email to eeva@eevanikunen.com and we can discuss more!

I specialise in human and animal characters. Creating highly detailed and decorative illustrations is my strong point.
