My values include freedom, respect for human dignity, tolerance, compassion for yourself and others, and living in harmony with nature. 

I am member of the Art Association in Ekenäs/Tammisaari, Finland and Espoo Art, Finland. 

I have done various art studies as well as studies and trainings in social and health care and therapy work.

I have set up my own art company HannaartByHanna in 2021. 

Hello, my name is Hanna Maarit Jauhiainen!

I have drawn actively since I was a child. My childhood family supported me, seeing to that I had a big roll of drawing paper in my room, a lot of colors, paints and an easel. I always knew that I wanted to be an artist. I went to an art-friendly school and I studied painting actively. I got to used to going to museums too. 

With my own family and work, painting started to play a minor role in my life. After that there was a pause in my activities that lasted for many years. I have also had a long career in mental health and substance abuse work. In 2018 I started to make sketches again and look for my own expression and voice. 

In 2019, I was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. That made me reevaluate what I wanted to dedicate the rest of my life to. I am 54 years of age. I hope to live to be a hundred! Recovery from cancer reminded me of fulfilling my own dreams. Healing from cancer reminded me to fulfill my own desires and that I have no more time to waste waiting for a "more suitable" moment. Life is here and now, not tomorrow!

I am grateful for everything I have been able to experience in my life, but now I do my best to listen to my inner artist's voice as an independent entrepreneur and a professional artist. I believe that my honesty and sincerity in making my art is conveyed in my intuitive works.

Dear Friend of Art,
I invite You to join me on this lifelong adventure! I hope that my paintings bring You joy and comfort and remind You that hope and compassion are always present in Your life as well.

Reach for the stars, dare to dream and surrender to life.
