I'm Heidi Tamminen, a Finnish artist and illustrator. 
I create energetic, surreal, and expressive illustration work that persistently finds the humour and fun in all things. I use my colourful and often exaggerated characters to convey emotions and tell stories in all sorts of contexts from character design and comics to branding, advertising, and communication design.

My visual language draws from cartoons, mythologies and fantasy, lowbrow art, pop surrealism and the incredible natural world. I find satisfaction in vivid colours that hurt the eyes, contrasts that won’t apologise, and shapes that fill the space. I am endlessly intrigued by the experience of being a human creature and a firm believer in the importance and storytelling power of diverse, weird, wonderful and flawed characters.
