Hanna Maarit Jauhiainen 

Said about my paintings

The Brick Lane Gallery 2021/ London: “The watercolour paintings of Hanna Maarit Jauhiainen are magical. Her work incites the remembered sense of wonder, intrigue and marvel of a childhood bedtime story and plays with scale in a way that transports us entirely back to our younger selves.”

My life journey so far

My life as an artist is divided into two different periods: before and after I realized that my time is limited. I have drawn actively since I was a child. My childhood family supported me, by seeing to that I had a big roll of drawing paper in my room, a lot of colours and paints and an easel. I always knew that I wanted to be an artist. I studied actively, I went to an art-friendly school and in my spare time I frequented various art clubs. I got to used to going to museums. With my own family and work, painting started to play a minor role in my life. I have, however, had three exhibitions of my own in Helsinki and taken part in two group exhibitions. I studied, for example, more landscape and watercolour painting at the Free Art School. After that there was a pause in my activities that lasted for many years. In 2018 I started to make sketches again and look for my own expression and voice. In 2019, I was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. That made me reevaluate what I wanted to dedicate the rest of my life to. Now I am 52 years of age. I hope to live to be a hundred! Recovery from cancer concretely reminded me of fulfilling my own dreams. I went back to my roots, and nothing could stop me from making art daily. I live and breathe what I was born to do. What I am trying to express are the stories behind the paintings. Hope, compassion and life’s sensitivity are focal points in my work. My paintings are small and invite a closer inspection. I have always found watercolour technique to be thrilling and challenging. You may think that you can control it but it always finds its own ways. - And that makes watercolours, art and life so unique and wonderful.
