I will put more paintings up on Artmajeur.com, probably if I manage, or then in May, and THEN I'll concentrate on finishing my latest comic. 70% done.  It will come out in English and German, at least. And, yes it is closely linked to my husband short film project.

If you click on the picture it will guide you to my page on Artmajeur.com
or Helsingin Taiteilijaseura Taidelainaamo.
 The fotos of the paintings will be put up soon on the latter.
I also renewed my pages at Kuvataiteilijamatrikkeli (link above).

 I am also writing a book, but, about that later.

She has dabbled in arts, illustration, teaching, upholstery, painting chairs,
 walls, pictures, and whatnot, and is thus a self-declared multi-dilettantte.
