Encouraged by my new friend, and a fellow winner of the myartspace.com South of France competition, I decided to start keeping a blog on my studiowork.
I am a visual artist from Finland, currently finishing my postgraduate studies in art at SIUC in Southern Illinois. In a year's time, I am hoping to have moved back to Europe, either Scotland or Finland, and to have found work in the arts. This blog will follow the preparations for my final show at SIUC.
The image above is a photo of my installation, Poison Dwarfs. The faces are painted in oil, and the bodies are made of wood. Here is a link to my website if you want to check out my work: http://www.ilonaniemi.com
