  5. 5. A FUTERE WITHOUT ART IS AN EMPTY BOTTLE The future needs we have to think about the way we educate our children and see them as complete human beings. Educating by thinking about economic and technical value of new generations is too less and will never bring the expect results. Art has to be an integrated part in every one’s life and by art education a child can grow up completer than without it. Art education is not the decoration, but an essential ingredient for being human. Basically it is not possible to expect people take risks, behave responsible, are critical, can choose or are able to see what is going on in the world when they don’t have the content to be like that. To know about a fundamental way of working with and by art it is necessary to know about the artistic way of thinking, study the results of child art and build up and use good curriculums and methods.
  6. 6. about my artistic work As long as I remember drawing is a part of my life. As a child you never have the idea the way you exist is different and not like everybody’s life. It is like it is. In drawings and paintings I could be the one I was. It was always an exciting moment to see the material transform into something you want. Finger painting was not my way of thinking. I think already in the age of five I feel it was like an illusion. You have to do it because it should make you free. From what? It has nothing to do with visualizing. Except finger painting I liked all kinds of art work and I was and I am always curious to see what happens when you do something unexpected. How is the material reacting? In what way you get new ideas through it? My art teacher during my study in the teacher’s training college was very important for me. His enthusiasm and knowledge about art and art education inspire me until this day. Of course I go my own independent way in my artistic work, but the fundament was build up during these years. From the moment I start as a teacher art was an important issue of it. Working with children and see how it is possible to develop their talents gives me all the time a positive impulse. My artistic work is intensively related to the artistic work of children. Both are part of my way of 5 years old –finger painting- existing. Creating art by my self is the base of my life, it is what I am. Working with children, but also I does not like it at all with adults, belongs to it. My artistic way of working is to see what is already there and what can I do with it. The ideas are in the subject and I am able to see and to visualize them. The material I work with has its own quality and possibilities and together with my technique, my handwriting the paintings are created. During the work I have always the feeling to be on a journey without exactly knowing where I will arrive, the most exiting feeling. Mono print is one of my favorite techniques. I like the process and working in layers and mixing oil paint lustrum 2000 materials and see how the skin of the work get its special structure. Every time it gives new perspectives and ways. I have many ways to work in it and still the possibilities did not end. Oil paint I like because of its soft skin and the way you can work in transparent layers, but also with relief by thick paint. The colors of oil paint are warmer than the acryl colors. That makes you had to work different with both materials. After living my whole life in the same place in the Netherlands, where I had my own art school, I decided in 2002 to move to Finland and in 2003 I started an art centre in Haukivuori. It gives the same feelings as painting, starting on a blanco spot without knowing anything and tries to arrange your life in the same and new way.
  7. 7. Creating a place where I can exist and where other artists and interested people can come together and contact to share and have new experiences is just like a big art work, once you start you don’t where it ends. It gives new possibilities with every step you do. My art work will change, because of the situation, the way it will change is not clear, therefore it is too soon. In the way I am growing in the art centre is a promise for the time coming and the future will show it. In the mean time I continue with everything. acrylic Finnish light sunset – sunrise 2007 stipendiums – awards and honours 2005 2005 2007 2008 2009 Etelä-Savon Suomen Suomen Haukivuoren Etelä-Savon Kulttuurirahasto Kultuurirahasto Kulttuurirahasto Aluejohtokunta Kulttuurirahasto 3000€ 14000€ 28000€ 2000€ Haukivuori citizen 2008
