About the Artist

My name is Emma Tapani and I live in Pajala, but my origins are in Saivomuotka.

As an artist, I use a variety of ways to express myself, mostly I paint with acrylic and draw with pencil and charcoal. You can describe my art as dreamlike, mythical and spiritual, where the motifs are usually animals and landscapes.

The inspiration comes from nature in Lapland, folk beliefs and the culture that is around me.

I am also a photographer, with my camera I capture moments out in nature and encounters with animals.
