Greetings! I am Kaisa-Maria Laiho, an illustrator and visual artist living and working in Raasepori.
I like to create nature illustrations both by hand and digitally. When creating my images I especially enjoy using gouache and pencils.
An important part of my work is walking in nature. I need the silence of islands, gardens and swamp forests for my artistic thinking. I am inspired by the temporality of plants, untouched tussocks and the diversity of old-growth forests.
My strengths are making things by hand, species identification and capturing the details of nature. I am also able to create simple layouts.
