After volunteering for several years in various theatres in Finland as a costumier, I then moved to London (2013) to do my BA degree in costume design in University of Arts London. It was during my course when I took an interest in costume sculptures and started to develop my own idea for an art project, in which I wanted to combine costumes and mental health.

I have showcased my large-scale costumes and taken part in collective exhibitions with my mixed media sculpture work in London at Southbank Centre, Central Saint Martins and at The Laundry.

I am currently living in London and doing my MA Art and Science course in Central Saint Martins, where I work on my art project, Costumotions, in which I use costume as a medium for emotional expression.
