Vilma Pellinen smiling in front of a red brick wall


I’m a surface designer and illustrator living and working in the tiny village of Suvanto, Finnish Lapland. I have a Master’s degree in fashion from Aalto University School of Art, Design and Architecture.

Growing up next to forests and lakes has shaped my fondness for outdoors, animals and all things living. Nordic nature is my endless source of inspiration. It’s often the details and the magical northern light in all its colors that catch my eye. The core of my creative process is taking time to observe my surroundings and, on the other hand, letting my mind create its own milieus. Surprises in everyday life, a good cup of coffee, and tasty food keep me going!

I’m passionate about working with pictures and patterns, whether they are on paper, textiles, stationary, or something totally different. I’m always interested to chat about projects of any size. Let’s get in touch!
