About the piece
Heikkinen uses the pencil as her sharpest tool. She draws everything she feels. For her, it’s important to express every little feeling that hides inside her body. She listens to the head and the heart and put it down on a paper. Together the mind and the body creates a beautiful team. But to love your body can be a life long process. The human body should always be loved, honored and respected.
About the artist

Prior to her education at Beckmans, Heikkinen was a student at Väddö Folkhögskola, Lidingö Folkhögskola as well as Forsbergs skola where she was trained in graphic design. Heikkinen finds inspiration in the early 90s and is appealed by the red color scale. According to Heikkinen an important part of her artistry is not to be too serious but rather to keep a certain amount of playfulness in everything she creates. By expressing herself in a strong way and have fun during the creation process result in her artworks being as great as possible.
