Hello Helsinki!

I am good at getting lost, but usually I don’t have time for it. For that reason and because of convenience I use the same routes, walking to work via my child’s preschool and back home the same way. I may pop into the galleries along the way, but not often. Therefore my view of this wonderful city is inevitably narrow.

For this exhibition I asked some special people to show me a place in Helsinki where they enjoy spending time. Once there, I drew both the person and the place. Sometimes I failed, creating nothing but a mess. I tried not to freak out and just continued drawing, letting myself get a little lost. Other times I felt like I got a grip on both the subject and the crayons.

A big thank-you to my guides!

We will do a tour of the drawing sites, the trips and dates you’ll find here
