Biography

Working with one of the hardest mediums, Eili-Kaija is something of an expert in the watercolour world. Her nostalgic scenes explore visual attributes of family, worldly cuisine and cluttered old maps and books. An Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture graduate, Eili-Kaija developed her style to include pencil crayon and inks, enjoying the adventurous spirit of the line taking her on an unknown voyage. With an MA in graphic design, Eili-Kaija has the rare ability to be able to design as well as illustrate, evident in her more detailed work for fashion clients and cartography. Her loose, feminine style appeals to pretty much everyone, but predominantly editorial commissions and those looking for a touch of cheerful loveliness.
