Henna -94 / Pieksämäki, Finland
Having grown up at a farm, I didn’t have that much to do with fashion and arts. Seeing Project Runway, however, made me obsessed and I started dreaming of a career in fashion.
As my original goal was to become a fashion designer, I studied enough arts, handicrafts and sewing to design and make clothes. Ended up changing directions and studying a bit of graphic design before starting my illustration business in 2021. After a year in the business, I decided to get back to school to finish up my bachelors degree in culture and arts.
Outside of my creative work, I enjoy time outdoors, doing some photography and playing games on my PC. Also renovating our 50s house and trying to live a more sustainable life by second hand shopping and getting as much of our food directly from the nature close-by as possible.
