About The Art
Eeva’s art is inspired by nature and fantasy. She grew up appreciating the beauty of nature, spending many of her childhood summers in a cottage in the middle of the forests in eastern Finland. Elements of fantasy and the decorative arts can also be seen in Eeva’s drawings and paintings. She got to spend a few years of her childhood in Denmark. Where she visited many of Denmark’s old castles and was introduced to the world of costume and set design by seeing performances at the Danish Royal Ballet theatre.
Eeva creates paintings using the old masters oil painting technique where the painting is first painted by using just two colours and then glazed over with dozens of thin layers of paint. Eeva loves to pay attention to tiny details in her art and create intricate drawings and paintings with lots of decorative elements.
Eeva currently works and lives in Vantaa Finland where she likes to take long walks in her local forest, drink lots of coffee and read fantasy literature and listen to music for inspiration.
