Milja Laine | Helsinki
Milja Laine is a Helsinki based illustrator and visual artist with degrees in ecology and visual arts, which explains why a nature connection is at the core of her artistic practices.
She works mainly with drawings, aquarelle, photography and collage.
She recurrently visits themes of vulnerability, otherness and impermanence, making poetic explorations on the interconnected and ephemeral nature of everything. Her personal projects often have a touch of surreal, yet she always delights in the beauty of the ordinary. Since 2012 her illustrations have been published in various nature sites, magazines and children’s books, and her artwork has also been on display in exhibitions all around Finland.
