I'm Maarit, an Amsterdam-based printmaker and portrait artist originally from Northern Finland.
Although I have always had a soft spot for crafting, it wasn't until my mid-twenties, that I started pursuing visual arts. At first this meant just doodling with a pencil, but in 2012 I participated in a one-year course at Liminka School of Art (Finland), studying painting, sculpting, and print making. For the rest I am self-taught, and I am currently working as a full-time independent artist.
My lino prints are often influenced by Art Nouveau, traditional tattoo style, myths and folk art, among others. The designs are characterized by delicate details, black and white contrasts, themes of nature, feminine beauty, and LOTS of flowers!
