I’m a color lover, freelance illustrator and graphic designer living in the south of Finland.

In my illustrations I like to tell stories trough characters and nature themes with emotion, subtle sense of humor and hint of mystical atmosphere.

I create my illustrations and art mainly with watercolor, ink and by coloring hand drawn originals digitally. I am ever curious and artisan in me loves getting hands on and experimenting with materials and techniques and learn new skills, lately linoprinting and ceramics.

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in graphic design and years of experience from various kind of design projects for both print and digital world.

I am interested in all kinds of illustration and design projects. If you have something in mind, just send me mail@marijohannao.com.
