Garden Studio - Irja-Liisa Kiiskinen, FIN, Visual Art


I´m 27 years old artist from Finland. My main interests in fine arts are ceramics, painting and drawing. In 2013 I graduated from Savonia University of Applied Sciences, Kuopio Academy of Design as a ceramic designer. I specialize in slipcasting and mold making but creating unique sculptures and trying out different types of glazes is most interesting. Humour and imagination are very important to have in life and it shows in my artwork. 

My dream has been to grow as an artist, work abroad and connect with other artists from around the world. Australia has always intrigued me. I would like to undertake a residency so I could fulfill my lifelong dream becoming an artist and working internationally. 

I hope to work abroad and connect with other artists from around the world. My intention is to grow as an artist and develop my artistic expression. At the end of my stay I hope to have a body of work that could be exhibited, combining paintings, drawings and ceramics.
