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!
