in English

Forever pessimistic, feet on the ground, up to her knees, a slight cape of doubt on


her shoulders. And pulling another one, just like her, behind her….”


The themes for my sculptures often refer to proverbs and jokes – to all that comes out


of people´s mouth. Verbal expression has always fascinated me. Dialects, metaphors-


in general all communication between people interests me, even speechless


communication with gestures. Also social themes interest me.


Regardless of the seriousness of my themes or perhaps because of it, I enjoy dealing


with them with slight irony. For me irony is in a way which is written into us Finns.


Slightly stiff and slightly stiffly. Slightly mischievously. Slight gleefully, enviously.
