Pauliina was born in a small town in Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland, where she now lives again after 10 years spent studying and working in Helsinki. When she was a child, with paintbrush and paper in hand, she asked her mother if artists usually paint landscapes or flowers. “Landscapes I guess”, she answered, but since then she has come to notice that there are more than those two options. Even though she has tried different paths in life, she has always known that she would be an artist, and recently decided to become full time freelance. Over the years she has fallen in love with medieval fantasy, and loves to illustrate stories with magic, mysterious creatures, knights and princesses.
