I live in the middle of the forest, in central Finland. I moved here some years ago from Helsinki, the capital area. How does the rural area affect the person?
Well, there is lot to do around the house. Much work. Distances from here to anywhere are long.
But I feel that my life is more intense, I feel myself more whole here. Here a person is in right proportion to the surroundings. And the rocks, mosses and big stones are a perfect surrounding for painting. I hope all this will affect my art.
