ABOUT Eeva Nikunen
I am an artist living in the south of Finland. I have worked as an independent artist since 2014. I graduated with a BA in graphic design in 2006 and after several years of working in various fields of design such as web design, game graphics and visual merchandising, I wanted to focus full time on art and illustration which is my true calling.
My work is inspired by portrait and still life artists from the 18th and 19th centuries. The subject matters I paint are inspired by my love for nature, fairytales and fantasy. I get all my painting ideas when I'm walking outside in my local forest listening to music.
I work mainly with oil paints and graphite. You can view samples of my work on my portfolio page.
