Hi! I am Sari Airola, illustrator based in Helsinki. Children’s book illustration and writing have been my passions for a long time. During my career I have done editorial, cultural, educational illustrations. I also make cards and animal illustrations.
I love new cultures, stories, and challenges. I enjoy working with people from different fields, combine different art disciplines and peek in new directions.
I am also educated as Art teacher, and I have been teaching in many Universities and schools and used my pedagogical experience in many illustration projects.
I have lived in many countries, and I feel it has expanded my take in illustration.
I like to speak English and I can communicate also in French and Swedish, as well as basic use of Turkish.
In my website there is more info of various projects over the years. Please be free to contact me if you got interested!
