In the words of the artist:
I have close Nordic family connections, but I hadn’t heard much about Finland until about five years ago when I was assigned to serve there as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Though it was my decision to serve, I did not get to choose where, and being assigned to Finland was a complete surprise. As soon as I received my assignment, I researched Finland and learned as much as I could. I was both excited and nervous to go, especially when I realized how difficult it would be to learn the Finnish language. But when I arrived in Finland in February 2014, I fell in love immediately. The cities were beautiful, the scenery breathtaking, and the people so kind and honest. I was assigned to serve specifically in Turku, Kuopio, and Tampere, so I never made it up to see Lapland, but I’ve dreamed of visiting ever since. After returning home to the United States, I began studying illustration at Brigham Young University in Utah. My work can be found on Instagram (@airheart9).
