About Heikala

I'm an artist and illustrator from Oulu, Finland. I use the traditional mediums of ink and watercolor to tell stories and bridge the divide between mundane and magical. I frequently attend conventions locally and around the world and sell prints, art books, apparel, accessories and other creations online. I manage this shop with a team of two.
My education background is in graphic design, and I graduated from Lahti Institute of Design. I started creating art full-time in 2016.
I create all my artworks traditionally with inks and watercolor, but lately I've been also interested in other mediums, such as poster colours and markers. My style is influenced by Finnish children’s book illustrations, Japanese animation, and my travels in Japan.
At the moment I'm concentrating on my own projects and art and not taking freelance work, but if you'd like to make a business inquiry please contact me via email:
