Paintings by Johanna Saarenpää – old and new
The exhibition features old and new paintings of mine. The oldest are from 2009, when I just started out painting with acrylics. Newer works are painted in oils. I enjoy storytelling and lately I have often tried to depict parts of my own life in metaphoric paintings. I’ve been interested in illustration for many years and I like combining subjects, usually associated with illustration, with fine art. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember and currently I’m mainly painting using water mixable oils. I love challenging myself and I'm focusing on improving my painting skills.
