It all began, in 1992, with my first solo paper-art exhibition at Design Forum Finland in Helsinki. Before that I had been living in Canada for some years and was inspired by North American paper-art of the 1980´s.

In 1997 I began to form paper on metal grids, illuminating them from behind. I presented these works in the "Fiber" paper-art exhibition in Fiskars, Finland. My first installation with 48 paperlamps was born.
