Beth Chesser

In the words of the artist:

I moved to Helsinki in 2017 from Brighton in the UK but I grew up on the Isle of Wight, a small island situated to the south of England. Having always lived by the sea, I have grown to love and respect the water, which is why Saimaa inspired me so much. To me, lakes possess a uniquely calm and reflective atmosphere and that is what I wanted to portray in my poster.
I began making visual art when I was studying for a degree in digital music and sound art. As part of my dissertation I created a mixed-media stop motion animation alongside the music and sound design. This is when I really fell in love with combining traditional hand made art with digital, and from then on I have always tried to keep some element of my work handmade.
