birch and star

Joined 7 years ago from Finland




I am a visual artist and art teacher.  My passion is art in natur.
I like to inform about phenomenons of contemporary art, write pedagogical articles how to do and understant art - write also art critiques.

"Birch and star" is a well known old story. When you are disoriented without a compass,  you can find you way by means of stars and seaching familiar tree...
I moved ten years ago from our largest city to a countryside town. I  was drifted far away from my ‘home’, from nature. Today  my dreaming tree stands in my garden, below it I can sit for hours at a time. Anyway, most of my time I spent with my computer. Internet is my second "home".
I have spent my chilhood in a farm. My favorite places was wild riverbank and shade on forest. Afrer that I  studied art in a city. I lived there twenty years as artist, art teacher and working with group of environmental artist. Nowadays I am editor of artist running virtual gallery of environmental art. Art in nature and environmental art issues are close to me.
