Satu Heikkilä is award winning alcohol ink artist living and working in Elimäki, Finland. Nature is a close and important part of her life and she finds her inspiration from nature’s beauty.
For Satu, art has always been a way to express herself. She was 9 years old when a local artist introduced the world of painting to her and she hasn’t stopped painting since. She used to paint with oils and acrylics but in early 2019, she found alcohol inks and they soon became her favourite media.
Satu’s works have been exhibited in Finland, Italy and United States, and her paintings can be found in private collections in Europe and USA.
Ink. Color. Nature.
Through my artwork I try to reveal the language of passion, life and soul. I use airbrush, straws and even only my own breath to capture the movement and life of inks on paper.
My bold floral paintings appear as dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet, meanings shift, past and present fuse. The possible seems true and the truth exists, but it has many faces.
The thought processes, which is ever so private, highly subjective and unfiltered in their references to memories, are often revealed as in unison.
