I studied Fine Arts and majored in painting at the University of Connecticut graduating with a BFA degree in 1972. I continued art studies at what was then Lahden Taideteollinen opisto (The Institute of Applied Arts in Lahti, Finland) and received my diploma in graphic design in 1983. I then worked as an in-house graphic designer at Weilin + Göös (1983 – 1984) and following that freelance for a number of Publishers in Finland as well as in the U.K. doing mostly illustrations for educational materials for children and young people. I have also worked as a teacher and produced materials to assist the children with learning English which have not been published but have been in use in clubs and classrooms. I am still very very motivated towards making learning fun and interactive and love to draw children and also stimulate them towards creative expression, both artistic and verbal. I also do calligraphy and hand-lettering. I have done hand-lettering for many children’s books for Tammi and Kolibri Publishers.
