Satu is originally from Finland but
has lived in the UK for 29 years. She's incredibly active on the arts scene and has been a committee member for Cookham Arts Club for 10 years.
Aside from that, she's just a bloody lovely and incredibly talented lady. :-)
A little bit more about Satu...
Born in Finland, Satu lived many years in Paris where she began to study art,
drawing and painting at Ecole d'Art Martenot. With a love of modern semi-abstract paintings, her own style lies something between figurative and abstract. She draws inspiration from a specific chosen subject, or sometimes just sees a shape in a photo or a magazine cutting, which leads to a project of its own. Often a composition will evolve from just a couple of lines on a canvas or MDF, after which certain colours feel right, and from there on it just happens. The painting is finished when she is satisfied with the balance and the colour combination and when the painting is a pleasure to look at.
And Satu's paintings are definitely a pleasure to look at - we absolutely love them!
