I Am Ready 2016


The year 2015 is coming to an end. And what a year it has been. I got my first personal art grant. I held my biggest (so far) art exhibition. I started studying (my fervors) animation and film. I moved back to my home town Turku (even though half of me is still in my 2nd home in Helsinki). I turned thirty.

It feels like my life has been spinning around me so fast for the whole year that I had to seize it for a brief moment to remember I was really here. Now lets say farewell to 2015 and welcome year 2016. Happy New Year!
