These fun loving images were originally created for Finnish shoe brand Minna Parikka.
These pictures show how perfectly body painting can be used within fashion advertising to support the original designs. This campaign has been shared in numerous blogs around the world and it received the Golden Prize at Vuoden Huiput (The Best of Finnish Advertising and Design competition).
Wonder Women - The WAU Project exhibition opened in Helsinki city centre two weeks ago. I am so grateful to have this opportunity to show these 12 works and share the stories of these amazing women in the artworks. So empowering and it's touching to see how some visitors have moved to tears because they feel they can relate to these Wonder Women. The feedback has been absolutely wonderful.

The Non-smoking campaign Body Tells the Story I painted for Pfizer few year ago proved to be an amazingly successful concept. Original campaign took place in Helsinki and it was then re-created next year for SuomiAreena in Pori, Finland. Again the campaign was picked up by many news sites and social media. Thought-provoking paintings really pass the message to the viewer and makes you think twice about smoking and what it does to your body.
I am SO excited about this news - I have finally opened my own online shop!
This year I wasn't competing which was totally new to me. I had thought I would just chill out and enjoy other artists' work, but turns out my week was full of action and activities, I didn't even have time to go for a refreshing swim in the lake! Hot and sunny week included my first workshop at the World Bodypainting Academy program, my fine art body painting exhibition, parties and jury duty at the world awards. So much fun!
Finally I have made this public! So let me introduce you to "Wonder Women - The WAU Project"!
