Hi there! I'm Siru Tirronen (she/her) and I work as a freelance illustrator and teacher. I have graduated with Master's degree in Art Education from Aalto University. In addition to illustration work, I work as a teacher in Espoo and Helsinki Adult Education Centre, where I teach illustration and give lectures on gaming culture.
As an illustrator, I have made illustrations for magazines, organizations and book projects. My illustration style is colorful and realistic: I often address current topics in my work.
As an illustrator, I want to create images that participate in discussion around social issue and create authentic representations. By illustrating magazine articles I've gained a lot of experience in illustrating topics such as sustainable development, energy policy and media education.
I am proud to be the illustrator of KAVI's Uudet lukutaidot project from the Tutustu ilmiöön series.
