Mirva Liimatta

kuvataiteilija ja kuvittaja / visual artist and illustrator

I am a Finland based visual artist and freelance illustrator.
 

My favorite working tool is digital vector graphics but traditional drawing and painting are also an essential part of my artistic work. I make illustrations for magazines and newspapers as well as poster and cover art and infographics. Also, I'm interested to do work for textbooks and children’s books.

In addition to working as an illustrator, I also work in the field of Fine arts mainly painting and utilizing video techniques.

I have graduated as a visual artist from Saimaa University of Applied Sciences in 2014, experimental arts as my main subject.
