CV/My life story

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,  Espoo Art and Suomen Taiteilijat ry. 

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.
