The great blog heist - day 2

22 February 2012

Hi again! Maybe I should tell a little bit more about myself since I will be here for a few days. I’m an American artist living abroad in Finland. Although I was classically trained, I’m working as a graphic designer and illustrator. Most of my life, I’ve been quite the nomad – realizing only just this weekend that the home in which I live presently is approaching the longest time I have ever lived in any house. Despite moving around a lot, much of my time was spent growing up in the southern states of the USA. My memories are heavily colored by the long, hot summer seasons with a soundtrack of cicadas. Leather car interiors could scald your legs, air conditioners struggled to move the humid air about, and stink of dogs in the heat is something all on its own. People always ask how I got here. Much like with anything else, I just decided to set out – take a chance and see how the life is closer to the Arctic Circle. Looking back, that first summer in Finland was luxury at its peak. Lazing about in the sunshine with my fella, swimming in clear, cold lakes, and digging my toes into the soil of the next steps of my life – it was all so quietly fulfilling. 

Still is. 

Enough of my rambling for now! In case you missed it, Mervi’s taking a little holiday – but don’t worry, she’ll be back at the end of the week!

I love reading about other people's lives. So interesting! How long have you been living in Finland?

I'm happy to crash Mervi's blog for a few days - so it's nice to see that you gals are enjoying it. :)

I've been in Finland now for something like 5 years! Time is flying so fast, it's hard to remember sometimes.
