(That is Finnish and means simply Hello!)
I am Anna Kaisa. I live in Rauma, a beautiful old town at west coast of Finland with my spouse and our cat Tyyne.
I love beauty, colors and meticulous work. Aesthetics are important to me and with my art I want to bring people a piece of beauty and luxury to everyday life. Learning something new takes me easily into a state of flow and I have a burning desire to learn new skills. This is also true in my art: I love to try new techniques and tools once in awhile. I get easily enthusiastic, so my art also changes shape constantly.
I am a self-taught and part-time artist. I paint mostly with acrylics at the moment, but my latest fascination is gouache colors. I specialize painting gemstone and diamond portraits, but occasionally I paint other topics too, according to inspiration. I am a jeweler and hand engraver as my day profession, so the influence to my paintings widely comes from that world. Check out also my light as air, yet very splashy plywood earrings.
