The very talented Eva Lamppu
The very talented Eva Lamppu works as a professional painter in Helsinki. She specializes in oil paintings and in tempera and textile collages. She studied art at the Free art School in Helsinki 2011-2016 and has been very productive since the beginning . Eva has had numerous group- and solo exhibitions. She finds inspiration in form , a feeling or both and she paints people, objects, spaces and occasionally landscapes. Her use of textiles as part of her paintings is unique and makes her art much more interesting. The colour schemes in her art are very harmonious and work, in our opinion, in every home. A home is never complete without art. This is something we tend to neglect nowadays. You can find her homepage here.
