The Artist and her paintings

Solja Upola has painted since she was a child, for over 30 years. She gave up oil painting at the beginning of the 90's and started to work with water colours. She finds them challenging, and she also finds this technique ideally suited for the description of an impressionistic moment. Daring brush strokes, clear colours and playing with contrary colours are characteristic of Upola, and all these lend a fresh, Lappish feature to her paintings.

Every painting is a unique piece of art. Every finished work is, as it were, a communion of colour and water, and the unpredictability of the outcome manages to inspire its creator with a sense of wonder over and over again.
