Hi! I'm Heidi Tamminen, a Finnish artist and illustrator. 
I graduated from Edinburgh college of Art in 2020, and I'm now based in Eastern Finland.
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.

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 don’t make apologies, 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.
Contact me if you have a project in mind, or just to say hi!
