Anna Emilia Laitinen

She loves drawing houses, be they big or small,

She loves trees, both inside and out

and all that she sees becomes pattern

"The weather gives the color to my paintings. When I paint I think of all the faraway places the wind reaches and hope to hear from them.
I enjoy finding connections between nature and the ones living in it, collecting them as memories on a soft cotton paper".

There is a rare sense of calm in the work of this Finnish graphic designer / illustrator. A peacefullness begot from her oneness with nature and an awareness and sensitivity to "colours, wind speed and sounds under (her) feet". I do hope you'll enjoy her paintings, drawings and Weather Diary as much as I did.
