This article by Jenni Kleemola is about Finnish health care. People who have money can have easier access to private health care, while others with less money have more difficulties to get time for doctor. Sometimes one has to choose between food and teeth. I made the illustration by using modeling clay and transparent foil which was great fun. The photos were taken by Anna Huovinen in Sanoma studio. See the whole article here.

Me Naiset 37/2020
This article by Virpi Salmi is about addictive horoscopes. We had a brainstorm with photographer Mikko Hannula about the illustration, and decided to try something new for us. I painted everything with colours which are shining only in uv light. Luckily it worked out very well also in photos, specially online – in print the colours got a bit weaker. I have to say that this is one of my top 5 work assignments. I loved to have my hands on real stuff :).

Me Naiset Barbie’s 60th Birthday party article
This is one of my favourite works. I built up these small sceneries for Barbie doll’s 60th Birthday. It was great fun to plan all the interior for her home. Photos by Johanna Jarva. Me Naiset 31/2019, Sanoma Lifestyle. Read the full article here.

Me Naiset Story
This is a serie of illustrations I made for Me Naiset magazine on summer 2018. The serial story “Sisareni elämä” (“My sister’s life”), included 8 parts, one in each magazine. The story was written by Anneli Kanto. The main character of the story went through a big metamorphosis of her life, and there came the idea of changing image each time graphically and colourwise. The original illustration was from iStockphoto, modified in InDesign.




Me Naiset Parfumes
Here is an collage illustration I made for Me Naiset women’s weekly magazine’s parfume article. The idea was to illustrate parfumes for different moods (peaceful, powerful, fresh sporty and sexy). Me Naiset, issue 44/2015.
