Spreading joy with colourful creative creatures. I'm visual artist and illustrator Elli Maanpää from Finland.

I opened this Etsy shop over 10-years ago. When I started it - ten years ago - I sold small marker drawings. But then I forgot Etsy and for a decade it's been empty. Instead I've concentrated on my studies: BA in Fashion Design and MA in Visual Culture from Aalto. And the latest: degree in Animation from Turku Arts Academy. I'm graduating this spring.

Painting and creating art is my life. When I was eleven I bought set of acrylics and decorated my room walls. I painted flowers, teddy bears, aliens and cats. I also wrote slogans like "Hippie lifestyle" and "Life is a flower". This year the same room has been my painting atelier as I've been finishing my animation studies in Turku Finland.

Now - May 2019 - it was time to make a comeback to Etsy. I want to share my gouache, acrylic and marker paintings with you. My mission is to spread joy with my colourful creative creatures.

To optimize time and resources I've partenered up with print-on-deman company. Lovely folks in Riga Latvia fulfill the orders. The art work you choose will be custom printed for you so there is no spoilages. It takes about 2-5 days to fulfill your oder and about 5-10 days to ship it to Europe and 10-20 to elswhere.

I hope I can make your day little more happy, colourful or animalistic with my art. Have a sunny day!

Yours sincerely,
Elli Maanpää - Animated Painter
Turku, Finland.
