About Me

I’m Hannele, an illustrator and an artist based in UK, originally I’m from Finland.

My work explores transformation on physical, emotional and intellectual level. In particular, I am looking at the connection between these three aspects, that is,  I get my inspiration from seeing how seasons change and how we perceive our life, listening to rhythms and tones and discovering weak signals.

One of my favourite project has been working on ways of illustrating (transforming) music. The area of study is close to my heart as music has been part of my life in many ways from my childhood to these days. How I’m seeing music, that is something layered and multidimensional, it evokes feelings and emotions and can resonate in your body. Among my other works you may find a collection of artworks based on the research on Music on the Portfolio page. Also, for further reading, please have a look at Blog where you may find an Essay on Music Illustration, and more stories behind my other artworks too.
