About Me

Bio

I’m a geek at heart, with both a techie and an artsy side.

I make a living on being a software developer, but that is by far not the only technical thing I do in my life. I am widely interested in science and technology with a couple of (never ending) geeky side-projects besides work.

Besides the tech stuff, I was always intrigued by art and beauty. I sketched and painted since I was able to hold a pen. I took various classes throughout my life. I started off by mostly doing drawings with pencil, chalk, or coal. I did mostly portraits of animals and humans and later even some nude portraits.

Later (~2008), I picked up painting with acryl. I paint mostly from photos or copying other paintings. I haven’t found my thing here yet, I just use the medium whenever I want colors.

At some point, I started doing body paintings. That one was never planned, it just started off as a one-off favor I did to a friend. However, it turned out to be rather popular and now I am doing it roughly once a year for friends.

Sometimes, I even take some steps into photography.

In particular, I like projects that combine technology and arts. These range from playing with the arduino or stitching pixel pictures of vintage computer games.

  1. Hello Helga!

    Great those belly/body paintings! Maybe some people will ask your paintings to be made as a tattoo?

    You like Dragons? What is interesting in them? I’m travelling to Taipei soon. Do you think one can see dragons there? Have to take camera with.

    Greetings,
    Antti

    ps. Have a good visit in Washington (spotted info from Lisa 13 leaflet from which kind of drifted on your website…). Interesting things.
