Welcome to my homepage! My name is Eeva Kouvalainen (mn. Korhonen). I live with my family in Jyväskylä, Finland.
I am an art-painter, an art-instructor and a cartoonist. I sell original artwork and art-instruction service.
Painting ART is my Purpose. I was raised in an art home ”Hunninko” in a small town named Pyhäjärvi. My family is full of artists: two of my sisters, Anna and Paula, and my late father Matti Korhonen. My degree on Fashion Design and studies of Graphic Design have also impacted and strengthen my Voice.
I paint with an acrylic-technique I like to call ”ink stain test”-method. The process produces art through my hands, that often describes Finnish and Northern soulscape and mythology. Every painting has a meaningful story to it, whitch are posted in English on my Instagram-account. I sign my paintings with my maiden name, because I feel it honours my blood inheritance.
My art fulfills it´s Meaning when it resonates with the Viewer`s soul and gives the inner abstract a feeling, form and name. That for me is the most wondrous feeling!
Check out my art-gallery! Here I have chosen pieces of my art-work over the years. Everyone of theme has a story I have posted in English on Instagram. Enjoy!
You can buy my original art from this gallery or make a commission by DM. The prizes are in €uros.
I sell art-instruction for leisure and entertainment for local businesses in their own residence. I have a selection of painting designs with printed instructions and all the equipment needed for my art-clients. It is a service for those who want to make their clients or staff enjoy themselves for some hours for example within an event, evening or happening. Next gallery contains the art design-options I have for instruction-clients.
MAMI-cartoon is a warm and loving biographical overview on my family-life in Finnish. I publish MAMI-cartoon weekly on Instagram in English #mamicartoon.
