Welcome to my corner on Artflakes. My name is Niina Niskanen. I am traditional artist, designer and Illustrator from Finland. I started to paint at very early age. I remember my first drawings. I used to draw houses with people inside them playing, cooking, having fun.... They were like little dollhouses on paper.

I'm inspired by nature and myths and legends.
Some of my favorite subjects to paint are fairies, cats, witches, polar bears, baby animals, mermaids, characters from mythologies and sometimes just capturing on paper the miracles I see in nature.. like the first snow or hedgehog sniffing the autumn leaves.

I love painting with watercolors sometimes I also use other medias like colored pencils, acrylics and make mixed media art. My color palette is very bright and vivid.
