A visual artist best known for her idolized drawings of cows, Miina Äkkijyrkkä allows the world to experience her passions through her art. Heavily inspired by light and right state of mind, Äkkijyrkkä can create art anywhere as long as her first two stipulations are met. Her prints are featured on everything from fabrics to kitchen and tabletop accessories. A believer of reality and expressing that reality through her work, Äkkijyrkkä feels that the dreams, ideas and the work process itself are an important aspect to her prints. “Life should not be too easy. Contrasts and pressure add richness to life.” A non-traditional artist who uses her own personal experiences to shape her art has led her to design unexpected and uncommon patterns.
