hi, this is me, matilda!

I'm an artist, designer, teacher and a dreamer.

I have versatile background in crafts, art and design. I graduated 2015 from Lahti Institute of Design and Art, Interior Architecture and Furniture Design as my major and I started my Master level studies at Aalto University in Product and Spatial Design department in 2016 focusing on Applied Arts & Design -competance area and recently, Spring 2018, changed my major into Fashion, Clothing and Textile Design department.

I love vivid colors and 3-dimensional surfaces. I often work in the borderline of art and design and I would descripe my work as design art. In my work artistic expression and design
based problem solving go hand in hand.

For me it is important that my work has somekind of statmenet whether it is commenting a social phenomena or
just saying “hey, smile, it’s not so serious”.

To see beauty around you, you have to learn how to see. For me a huge part of learning how to be a designer was to learn how to see.

Many times people regard sensibility and vulnerability as weaknesses but in time I have learned that they are my greatest strengths as a creative person.

As being sensitive I observe the world in details and in great curiosity. In that curiosity my creativity comes from.

Inspiration comes in many shapes and sizes. You just have to be open for it.
I am.

-Matilda
