Päivi Mansikka-aho

Hello everyone! My name is Päivi Mansikka-aho. My illustrations have been spread all over the world in over a million postcards. They have also appeared in children's books, games and educational materials. I love collaboration and new challenges. I have been fortunate to be involved in a wide variety of projects, working for both organizations and publishers. I work efficiently and always meet deadlines. I also see the role of illustration as part of a bigger picture and do my part to achieve the goals of the project.

My work is based on strong drawing skills and a versatile use of watercolors. I am often commissioned to do illustrations with a Christmas theme. Educational illustrations allow me to combine my expertise in both professions.
