My name is Sanna-Kaisa Riihimäki. I'm a visual artist and industrial designer from Finland.
I love dark art and beautiful, atmospheric landscapes, whom I create with oils, watercolour and acrylics. I create digital art as well, but my main interest is in traditional art forms.
For dark art, I gain my inspiration mostly from my imagination, and on my social media, these works appear under the @sannariihimaki profile. Atmospheric landscape paintings I work under the name @sanna.kajsa.
Places in landscape paintings are always from somewhere in Norden - where I have visited and felt something meaningful (mostly the beauty of nature). I take photos of nature, which I paint from (with my interpretation). Most of the paintings are from Västerbotten area in Sweden, where I live, and from my home country Finland.
Overall, I would call my style something like "dark surrealism" and "illustrative realism".
I have exhibited my art in Finland, Norway and Sweden. For more detailed information on my CV, please check out my LinkedIn page here.
I live in Umeå, Sweden. I belong to Kreativ Kollektiv- an art collective, where I have my working ateljé. Our collective is organizing inter alia popular Pilgatans Kulturmarknad and Pilgatans Julmarknad every year, so these events are great spots to meet me for example. Otherwise, you'll find me at my atelier in Pilgatan 13
(as agreed) or contact me through social media or my website.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask! You can write to me in English, Swedish or Finnish.
Hopefully, you'll have a great day.
