May 2015

Katja Vartiainen is a Master of Fine Arts, painting. She calls herself a multi-dilettante because she also has done illustration, teaching, worked in indie film, and even upholstery. Her visual inspiration comes from fine arts as well as from everything on this curious, tragicomic piece of rock floating in space. She has several doodle books, her comics have been in the humor genre, and now she is exploring the darker sides of existence in horror.

With her husband/collaborator Christian Eberle, they share a taste for humor, films, and love for cats.

“Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is. Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!”
