22. Gnome


Gnome is a silence and peace loving creature. They live underground, survive the winter by hibernating through it and otherwise they sleep during the day and stay awake through the nights. Because of their big, sensitive ears they can sometimes get angry if someone stumbles around loudly near their home caves. As a result the stumbler can be taken as prisoner and made to learn of the importance of silence. As aj exception to the rule is music: the Maahinen absolutely love it. Gnomes are a shape-shifters and can transform to, for example, animals. When gnomes grow up, they develope into elves.

I’m Anniina, born in 1997 in Siilinjärvi and currently studying visual arts in Tornio . Until now I’ve been doing mainly traditional art or painting and drawing. Little by little digital art is also gaining a stable position in my life.  The main subjects in my work are emotions and life, both in good and bad. I let my art speak for itself.
